Launch of Steve Roggenbuck’s New Collection
February 28 2015
The work of poet Steve Roggenbuck explores, in his own words, “the new forms that poetry, humor, and spirituality might take on the internet.” Presenting and distributing his work almost exclusively through social-media platforms—Twitter, Facebook, Vine, Tumblr, and YouTube—and his blog, Live My Lief, rather than through conventional literary channels, he harnesses the potential of the social web to transform the relationship between artist and audience. At this launch for his latest collection of short stories, Calculating How Big Of A Tip To Give Is The Easiest Thing Ever, Shout Out To My Family And Friends (2015), Roggenbuck will read new poems alongside readings by invited guest poets, including Jacob Bakkila and Liz Bowen, among others.
