We introduced Digging Through The Fat to a lovely crowd of literary lovers at the beautiful New York Society Library. Tobias Carroll, Lauren Hilger, and Bud Smith all gave stellar readings. I was overwhelmed with the response we received for the journal and for these amazing people’s words. Thank you so much to Carolyn Waters, Head Librarian at The New York Society Library for inviting Digging to participate. Much love to Guernica, especially publisher, Katherine Rowland, editors: Raluca Albu and Meara Sharma, and Guernica’s special guests: Carmen Maria Machado and Ann Neumann. It was a great night for all involved.

Art Review No. 1 – Adrian Ghenie: On a mild Thursday night in January, I stroll in and out of a number of gallery openings. After a few sporadic visits through the galleries still holding on to their about-to-sky-rocket-rental-spaces, I wander into the Pace Gallery on West 25th Street to view twelve new paintings and five collages by Romanian artist Adrian Ghenie.
