First – thanks to everyone who’s left suggestions on the previous post. Some very interesting ideas there!
Second, thanks to everyone who braved the rain last night, to attend the reading at Cake Shop. Ben Sisario read the first few excellent pages of his Pixies book, followed by a quick Q&A session. This was followed by Marc Woodworth’s slightly less conventional reading from his GBV book, which included a randomly chosen 30-second taped snippet of his interview with Kevin Fennell, an anagram competition, some John Ruskin, some participatory collage poetry, and much much more. Thanks to all of the volunteers in the audience, and for Dan Carlson for taking the photos below.

The charming volunteers (and Marc) spelling out the name of the professor whose student, Nolen Twinn-Johnson, so tragically died before completing his dissertation on GBV.
