So excited was I over the creative and intellectual implications of what I saw at the AWP that I forgot to mention the more elemental thrill of seeing and holding my book for the first time. It has not yet been officially published - that will happen on March 15. But I am planning a book launch event at the Book Cellar in Lincoln Square, Chicago, on Saturday March 12 at 7 PM. It's going to be a celebration of the book and of the sonnet, that persistent deformed and deforming little form, which my book plays with.
