All Movies Love the Moon All Over America

Gregory Robinson has been traveling the country to read and sign from his book of prose poems on silent films All Movies Love the Moon. At the start of this month, he read with Adeena Reitberger at Malvern Books in Austin, Texas where they made him this beautiful marquee...

...and where they recorded this beautiful footage of the reading itself. Thanks to Malvern Books for being such a welcoming home for independent literature.

Also, while he was not actually in Minnesota, Gregory was able to record this interview with Minnesota State University's KMSU Weekly Reader program.

Later this month, on Saturday, May 31st, Gregory will be signing at the San Francisco Silent Film Festival at the famed Castro Theater. If you can go see him, you should! If you can't you can add his book to your cart here.
