The Low Country Shvitz Publication Reading 2 – Charleston!

The second of 4 pop-up publication readings for “The Low Country Shvitz” – This time with poems from Charleston, South Carolina, and special guests bonafide Charleston residents Roger and Lidia!

“The Low Country Shvitz” – My 27th Book, Is Out Now!

Check out “The Low Country Shvitz” – my latest humorous travelogue in poems, written in Savannah, Georgia (where ghosts inhabit the poems), Charleston, South Carolina (where the lady who gives out cookies is among the nicest people you’ll ever meet), Asheville, North Carolina (the east coast’s contribution to “weird” cities), and Charlotte, North Carolina, where ducks and frogs roam the streets without a single care.

“Lupert’s acute observations and fierce wit are staples throughout…” ~ Jeffrey McDaniel

“Rick brings the humidity not the heat to this new book of poems and you’ll adore it. I sure did.” ~ LB Sedlacek

Poem Included in “Dead Pets” Anthology

My poem “Filled Up” which I wrote a number of years ago when my sweet cat/best friend Tigger passed away is in this new anthology of poems about the loss of our furry friends. Thanks to editors Damian Hey and Rick C. Christiansen for including me. Net proceeds from this collection will be donations to the ASPCA so it’s a good read for a good cause. Check it out here.

I’m a Guest on Episode 100 of Eric Lawson’s “Make Your Own Fun” Podcast!

I was lucky enough to be guest #100 on Eric Lawson‘s Make Your Own Fun podcast! I got to talk a lot about my most recent book “I Am Not Writing a Book of Poems in Hawaii” and read a few poems. Thanks for having me Eric!
