Have screening. Will travel.

by Todd Boss, poet

Last night I drove three hours north from the Twin Cities to the tiny log cabin library in Cable, Wisconsin, where 15 people had come out of the woods on a Thursday night to hear me read my poetry and show a few motionpoems. I’ve read my poetry and screened Motionpoems’ films for groups of hundreds, but I love doing events like these where I can get to know individual audience members and get their feedback on the work.

This one proved to be a tremendous audience with intelligent questions and a strong thirst for more. I like a plain-spoken audience that isn’t trying to outsmart fellow academics, and I love unbridled enthusiasm; I find it in abundance at community events like these.

Thanks to librarian Kristine Lendved for arranging this event.

If your library, community center, bookstore, or school would like to order a Motionpoems screening kit or arrange an event, let me know, or inquire at motionpoems.com.
