    My chapbook of poems, “Tomorrow Too: The Brenda Monologues,” will be performed on stage this month at the Majestic Theatre in Corvallis (Oct. 26) and the Wildish Theatre in Springfield (Oct. 24-25). Three actors directed by Leigh Matthews Bock will present the monologues, which tell the true story of Brenda Arrieta Killian, who faced cancer while pregnant. The performances honor those, such as Brenda and her family, affected by breast cancer.
