Sue Weisler - Rochester Institute of TechnologyRemember Yourself Massage will be presenting a poetry reading by poet and small press publisher Michael Czarnecki on Wednesday, August 28th @ 7pm. Michael is embarking on a “Poems Across America Tour” featuring one reading in each of the lower 48 states. The 14-week tour started in Maine on Tuesday, August 13 and the final reading will be near his home in upstate NY on November 17, his 63rd birthday. This will be the 10th reading on the tour.

The reading will take place at Remember YourSelf Massage, 16 South Braddock Street, Winchester, VA

“This is a tour I have dreamt about for a number of years and have finally turned it into reality,” says Michael.

Michael is a poet, small press publisher and oral memoirist who founded FootHills Publishing in 1986. Since then, FootHills has released more than 400 chapbooks and books of poetry by writers throughout America and beyond. His work is published in a dozen chapbooks and books and Michael has been making his living solely through the creative word for nearly two decades. He has given hundreds of featured readings throughout America and has taken many cross-country poetic journeys, though none as extensive as this. Some have taken to calling him “Michael Poetseed” because of his many journeys throughout America. When not on the poetic road, Michael lives with his wife and sons on their 50 acre Wheeler Hill homestead in upstate New York.
