Penny Arcade, Steve Dalachinsky and Kat Georges pay tribute to the Beat icon
Had William S. Burroughs been able to parley a lifetime of unabashed drug use into an even longer life than he somehow managed to have (he died in 1997 at the age of 83), the experimental beat would have turned 100 this February. Celebrate the life of one of literatures most creative, controversial and uncompromising figures at Cornelia St. Cafe tonight with a discussion and tribute readings of his work by performance artist and Burroughs associate Penny Arcade, poet Steve Dalachinsky and spoken word artist Kat Georges. Those in attendance can also take part in a group reading of excepts from NAKED LUNCH. The festivities are presented by Three Rooms Press and hosted by Peter Carlaftes.
