The Big Book Party

Added on by Scott Cunningham.

On Friday, November 22nd, we threw a party for Adrian Matejka and his new book, The Big Smoke (Penguin, 2013), a finalist this year for the National Book Award in Poetry. 

Our partner D44 provided the beautiful setting and the boxers. Comedian Bonzi Chillups served up some laughs. And Adrian read from his powerful book about the first African-American heavyweight champion, Jack Johnson. It was a night to remember.
