Teatro Paraguas Presents A Poetry Reading/Book Launch By Larry Goodell
Teatro Paraguas will host a book launch and poetry reading with Larry Goodell reading from his new book Nothing to Laugh About.
Larry Goodell is from Roswell originally and has been living and working in Placitas since 1963 when he started Duende Press. He worked for years in the Living Batch Bookstore in Albuquerque and helped set up many readings some of which he recorded and makes available on Bandcamp, along with numerous albums of poetry readings at the Duende Poetry Series at the Placitas Winery.
Larry's new book is Nothing To Laugh About, poems 2015-2016. This follows the trilogy of Broken Garden, Digital Remains, and Pieces of Heart, all from Beatlick Press in Albuquerque. He's pushed a big variety of his poetry and writings and makings online and most of it can be explored from links on his website. http://www.larrygoodell.com/
Larry independently burst off the page as a "performance" poet in the late 60's and early 70's. His duende press, founded in 1963, is now reactivated with Latif Harris' Barter Within the Bark of Trees, The Oxbow Poems by Jim Burbank, Dancing the Snow by Jim Fish, and Swoosh of Herons by Ray Johnson. Many things to celebrate in his 82nd year.
