I finally shared a stage with my dear friend Ruth Antoinette Rodriguez! We met in our hometown of Houston, TX when we were bouncing around this thing called life. Nearly a decade later, we shared our writing in Antidote Bookstore, which she owns with her husband in Putney, Vermont.
About the show:

RUTH ANTOINETTE RODRIGUEZ (HTX) is a poet who works with typewritten words, ink images and fiber. A recipient of fellowships from the Fine Arts Work Center, the Community of Writers at Squaw Valley and Factory Hollow Press, Rodriguez holds a BA in English from the University of Houston.

Our reading was featured in the Community Events page for the Brattleboro Literary Festival. Also, I'm very proud to announce that copies of my zine are available for purchase at Antidote Books! Thanks for everything Ruth & Jeremy! Thank you Vermont for a lovely autumn evening.
