Photos from the MEET THE AUTHOR event!

The Meet the Author event at the Davisville Free Library in North Kingstown on Saturday, May 10, was a success! I enjoyed reading from THESE ONYX HOURS and seeing friends new and old — some of whom shared in the open mic, which followed.

Special thanks to the Origami Poems Project, who presented the event with the library, and Lynne for the photos and the collage. If you want to keep up to date with the Origami Poems Project, you can visit their Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/OrigamiPoemsProject Enjoy!

Interview and Poetry Reading on Talk of the Town

These Onyx Hours by Heather Sullivan

I was recently featured on WADK 1540 AM radio’s Talk of the Town with Bruce Newbury! The interview went well and I also read a piece, “All the Difference,” from my collection These Onyx Hours.

To check it out, http://wadk.com/podcasts/bruce-newburys-talk-of-the-town and click on the Talk of the Town show link that reads 12-09-13 (the middle one) – my interview begins at about the 26 minute mark. If you can’t locate it there or it has dropped off their page (they only archive for a certain amount of time), you can download the segment here (forward to about the 26 minute mark): http://wp.me/aIXRs-1QN
