Kim Dower is a wonderful human being. Her first collection of poems, Air Kissing on Mars, was just released by Red Hen Press (“the pimpest little press in the west”)* at the beginning of the month. She’s been on a whirlwind tour of LA lit venues, culminating this Saturday with a reading and free poetry workshop at Vroman’s. Besides being an energetic and engaging reader (and a successful literary publicist), once upon a time Kim taught creative writing at Emerson College in Boston. So dust off that sonnet you’ve been tinkering with for years and let Kim help you whip it into shape. One in the afternoon, sharp.
