Join us to celebrate Library of America’s publication of The Collected Writings of Joe Brainard. Its 450 pages present, for the first time, the full range of Brainard’s writing in all its deadpan wit, madcap inventiveness, self-revealing frankness, and generosity of spirit. With Anselm Berrigan, Lee Ann Brown, Michael Brownstein, Bill Corbett, Donna Dennis, Larry Fagin, Ed Friedman, Michael Lally, Keith McDermott, Thurston Moore, Charles North, Ron Padgett, David Shapiro, Johnny Stanton, Tony Towle, Anne Waldman, Lewis Warsh, Edmund White. Reading followed by reception. Co-presented with The Library of America and Bomb Magazine.
