30th Anniversary of The Book of Frank

My goal is to perform 9 book-length readings throughout the year. If you are interested in hosting one of the readings, I would appreciate you contacting me at 88CAConrad at Gmail dot com. 

I'm looking forward to celebrating this book! Thanks to my fantastic publisher, Wave Books, and to Eileen Myles for writing the Afterword! Many thanks to all of the translators and publishers who made The Book of Frank available in 9 different languages! I am very grateful to everyone who gives these poems life! After the 9th reading of the book this year, I will go into the studio to produce an audiobook for Wave!
