More from the Bowery

bowery poery club

In NYC for a conference I had time to stop in at the Bowery Poetry Club and say hi again to Gary Glazner. As luck would have it, Bob Holman was there so I finally got to meet him. I picked up some things to air on Wordsalad in coming weeks, including Rattapallax v. 13 and 15 and Bob Holman’s The Awesome Whatever. I also picked up a copy of Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz’s book, Words in Your Face, which I plan to memorize prior to this summer when Madison hosts the slam nationals. It’s a history of 20 years of the NYC poetry slam scene.
