Nikki Finney reads from HEAD OFF & SPLIT

Thanks to Honorée Fanonne Jeffers for letting me know about the lovely videos of Nikki Finney reading from her soon-to-be-published collection of poetry Head Off & Split. Book trailers are getting so sophisticated these days with hired actors, special effects, soundtracks, etc. But sometimes simply hearing the author read a bit of her work and tell readers a little of the history behind it is the most powerful way, IMHO, to interest someone in the work.

I've add Head off & Split to my books to buy list.

Nikky Finney is on the cover of Poets & Writers magazine this month.
