April - National Poetry Month - has come to a close for 2009. This means that my reading schedule is a little more open and flexible.
If anyone is interested in having me read and sign books - for culture, charity, poetry or art festivals/events, et. al., I'll be happy to accommodate if I can.
I only ask that you 1) limit the location to New England, 2) provide plenty of advance notice, and 3) allow me to offer copies of my book for sale at the reading.
Jeff Roberts lives in North Andover, Massachusetts with his wife, Barbara Hyle, and a hamster named Bernadette.

“…fiercely observant, honest and keenly sensitive, without self-pity…”
-Ned Clay, Love & Love Reclaimed, The Simple Press
“…Roberts’s poems bring us to a place where we remember and might reclaim the kind of experience that both aches and heals at once—the thing we come to poems for, in the end . . . a lost wisdom that poetry more than anything else tries to give back to us.”
-Paul Haenel, Farewell, Goodbye, Wave Goodbye, Washington Writers’ Publishing House
