extended hiatus

Due to expanded commitments to my small press, I've been forced to cut down on some other projects. I would be delighted if someone else came forward to carry on this blog. Meanwhile, I hope some of the links and contacts herein are of some use.



Group reading: Philly: 10/13/08

Monday, October 13, 6pm: Robin's Bookstore (108 S 13th St, Philadelphia) presents a group reading: Avanti Popolo "Columbus Day" Reading Featuring Eight Poets:

Co-moderators: Al Taconelli and Rosemary Cappello
Readers: Maria Fama, Mary Ann Mannino, Rob Marchesani, Emiliano Maartin, Linda Pizzi, and Tad Tuleja.

Inspired by the book Avanti Popolo: Italian-American Writers Sail Beyond Columbus, edited by The Italian-American Political Solidarity Club ($14.95 Manic D Press). Italian American writers celebrate their hidden history in a literary tribute to fighting social injustice. With the current anti-immigrant sentiments filling up newspaper front pages, these writers respond with thought-provoking works that focus on breaking from mainstream tradition. On Columbus Day, instead of celebrating conquest, these poets and writers acknowledge those who stood up for justice and have fought for the rights of all immigrants, regardless of heritage. With new work by Diane di Prima, Kim Addonizio, James Tracy, Michael Cirelli, Michael Parenti, Thomas Centolella, and many others.
