A few weeks ago writer and NPR personality Andrei Codrescu came to town. He read from his new book The Posthuman Dada Guide: tzara and lenin play chess.
It was a great reading, followed by a Q&A and a super fun Exquisite Corpse Dada Exercise at the end. Then the oranges, melons, and sharpie markers came out! The entire audience was encouraged to write lines on the fruit to create a poem. People marched up with their fruits and read the lines everyone had written. After all of the oranges and melons were read, they were cut and eaten. We had a great time!
Our friend Mark Spitzer, the managing editor of the Exquisite Corpse Annual sold quite a few copies of the first edition at the reading too! They’re still taking submissions for the next edition!
