Reading at Mollys Books




My first Philly event as a bonafide Philly person. Friends, including Molly herself, read work by Bob Gallagher, a local writer who passed away very recently. Brandon Holmquest (above) read a wonderful essay about the Mutter Museum which intrigued, but only in the abstract: I don't want to go but I enjoyed hearing his account. The young poet Laura Jaramillo read a complex and nuanced work responding to Benjamin's Aracades Project with a little help from a friend (also above). And there was the cat, and then there was the floor, both quite stunning.
