Louis Greenstein, author of MR. BOARDWALK, will read excerpts, discuss the book, and sign copies. The novel is an evocative tale of Atlantic City and its colorful characters in the years just before the casinos took over. Was that era more innocent or not? Come join the discussion. Sandals and sunglasses optional.
Yummy Poems, a mid-90's chapbook from recently named MacArthur Fellow Terrance Hayes, reflecting on 11-year-old Robert "Yummy" Sandifer in 1994 Chicago. We are posting a few pages of the chapbook each day this week and will put up a full downloadable file this Friday here at our website. Click on the attachments below for pages 5-8, including "Yummy Poem #4," "She," "The Muppets," & "Yummy Poem #10."
A big thanks to local celebrity (and rush-time front-counter Queen) Michele Elliott, from whose vast archives and close friendship this early chapbook comes, and of course Terrance Hayes for his kind permission to upload his chapbook to the web.
