Will You Go to Prom with Me?


I’m excited to be attending the Red Hen Poetry Prom!

I would love to dance to poems with you; what songs would you recommend for our playlist?

Leave your song request in the comments and you’ll enter a raffle to win 5 poetry books,

including a copy of Becoming Judas.


Pasadena, California—Red Hen Press, LA’s largest independent press and one of the largest literary presses on the West Coast, will commemorate its Twentieth Anniversary in 2014. In honor of that milestone, the Press intends to publish an Anniversary Anthology showcasing the depth and diversity of the Red Hen catalog, to produce a free, public festival celebrating literature and the arts, and to conduct a book drive supporting community literacy projects throughout Southern California. To fund this Anthology and the associated programming, the Press is launching its first ever Kickstarter campaign. It kicks off at 4 p.m. on Saturday, August 3rd, with Poetry Prom, a free event at the La Pintoresca Branch of the Pasadena Public Library.

  1. Not tech-savvy enough to figure out how to embed a video, but I am really fond of Deb Talan’s Rocks and Water. And of course, it you LOVE to dance, there has to be at least one round of Boogie Shoes by KC and the Sunshine Band.
