Jim Carroll 1949-2009


We are stunned by the loss of our friend Jim Carroll. His rare generosity of spirit will be missed. This 1st photo was taken by Melissa Zexter at the New Year’s Day Marathon Reading in 1998. The 2nd photo was taken by Jacob Burckhardt at the New Year’s Day Marathon Reading in 2006.

We’ll run a piece on Jim in the Dec/Jan issue of the Poetry Project Newsletter and we’ll have a memorial reading as well – date to be announced.
