Saturday, October 30 – Carol Novack & Anthony Madrid

Anthony MADRID lives in Logan Square. His poems have recently appeared or are forthcoming in AGNI Online, Boston Review, Iowa Review, LIT, Poetry, and WEB CONJUNCTIONS. His manuscript is called THE 580 STROPHES.

Carol NOVACK's writings may be found in numerous anthologies and journals, including MILK. She's the publisher of Mad Hatters’ Review and an erstwhile grant recipient and criminal/constitutional attorney in NYC. Carol immigrated to a mountain ridge in Asheville in May and is mini-touring her beautifully illustrated collection of fictions, fusions, and poems, “Giraffes in Hiding: The Mythical Memoirs of Carol Novack” (Spuyten Duyvil Press), in three cities this October. Hugh Fox has called "Giraffes": “THE most seductive, original, impacting work I have seen for years. A fascinating combination of Kerouacian street-talk plus a trip through the museum of Modern Art in Chicago, plus a nod-off to Kosty's furthest out experimentalism. Magnifique!” “She has the literary equivalent of perfect pitch, like those musicians who can specify the hertz of birds and burps. Uncanny tympani!” - Tom Bradley.
