I will be at The Beta Coffeehouse in Cody, Wyoming reading a range of my western poetry, both traditional cowboy storytelling and free verse, on Friday August 5th at 7:00 p.m. Tickets for this event will be available at the door.

The evening’s show will include a selection of poems from my soon to be released book, An Undiscovered Country, (Horace Simerman Literary Press) as well as an excerpt from my recent novel, A Cowboy on the Loose in London. This event will mark the first public reading of both these works.

The show is a fundraiser to benefit Children’s Resource Center of Cody. The Beta Coffeehouse is located on 12th Street directly across from the Historic Irma Hotel, Buffalo Bill’s Hotel in the Rockies. Cody is a center of the historic West and a wonderful place to visit to connect with Western culture. It is the gateway to the East Entrance of Yellowstone National Park and home to the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, a world class collection of five museums.
