Two Serious Ladies
Rachel B. Glaser was the first to tell me about Jane Bowles’ Two Serious Ladies; the first thing I read in Lauren Spohrer’s Two Serious Ladies was by Lesley Yalen. Today’s Lesley’s birthday and tonight Rachel and Lauren Spohrer and Lawrence Giffin and Diane Williams are going to read at Flying Object. You should arrive sharply at 8.
Lauren Spohrer wrote Happy Birthday and Natalie Lyalin published it. That’s serious.
I’ve never met Lauren Spohrer but she’ll be here any minute I just met Lauren Spohrer and Lawrence Giffin who wrote “It is now 01:23:34 AM on October 28, 2011.” in Ex Tempore (Troll Thread)
Lauren Spohrer and Lawrence Giffin wrote a dos-a-dos chapbook from Agnes Fox Press, Just Kids. It’s just out but it just won the National Book Award. Here are two serious pictures of Lesley Yalen holding Just Kids, and one just kids one:
