More about the venue, it is the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Special Collections branch, located on the northwest corner of Central & Edith, directly across Central from the Artichoke Cafe, which is both good food and a good landmark! The library itself is a 1925 Pueblo/Spanish Revival style home and is a historic building, really fun to visit. Parking is tricky, watch out for signs about not parking where it is permit only. Metered parking is available on the west side of Edith though. Come early, carpool, ride your bike or walk if you are nearby, enjoy this gorgeous spring weather.

LARRY GOODELL
  was born in 1935 in Roswell, New Mexico. He is married to Lenore Goodell, photographer & phenologist, and has lived in Placitas since 1963, extending poetry into its ceremonial roots – performance, masks, costume, lighting, song, scene, with cloth or painted backings to poems when appropriate. Although tagged as a performance poet since the early 60's he loves the printed page and founded duende press in '64.

His writing comes from the myth of local inspiration, and often generates from organic gardening and love for New Mexico. He is a risk-taker in language who avoids revision considering the hand written original as precedent. His work is often satirical and seriously funny. Books: Cycles, 1966 (duende press), Firecracker Soup, 1990 (Cinco Puntos Press), Out of Secrecy, 1992 (Yoo-Hoo Press), Here on Earth, 1996 (La Alameda Press). His online work is on the move, see http://about.me/larrygoodell for interviews, articles, numerous poems, plays, songs and a blog on 3 dimensional poetry.
