Jared Smith: Looking into the Machinery

I first heard Jared Smith read his poetry at the riverrun bookshop in Hastings-on-the-Hudson before I moved back to Albany in 1986. Then, in May 2009 he hosted Charlie Rossiter & me in his home in Colorado & accompanied us on our 3 Guys from Albany journey to Albany, Wyoming.

Looking Into The Machinery: The Selected Long Poems Of Jared Smith has just been released by Allen Hoey's Tamarack Editions, which has also published local area writers George Drew & Nancy White.  The book is available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Baker & Taylor, Ingram, and other booksellers.  Locally, call the Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza to order your copy.

Jared Smith will be reading at Books & Writers in Rochester on April 29th; at the May Day rally in Albany on May 1st (1 to 4PM, West Capitol Park); and will be the featured poet at Caffè Lena in Saratoga Springs on May 5th at the 1st Wednesday open mic. Catch him as he flies by.
