This is the surprising and uplifting biography of an eighty-nine-year-old man who lives on the sidewalks of New York City – dubbed by the tabloids as the oldest homeless man in New York. It’s a journalistic investigation into the remarkable realities of what it takes to be an old survivor on the streets of America today told through arresting photographs and free verse.
Author Joe Lamport will join us to discuss the man as well as the book, voted one of the best books of 2013 by Kirkus Reviews.
Baseball Historian Matthew Repplinger will be here on Sunday, June 22nd at 7:15 to talk about his new book, Baseball in Denver! This is a great chance to explore Denver’s history alongside America’s Favorite Pastime. He’s the president of the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Society for American Baseball Research, a Major League Baseball Statistician, as well as a player-manager for the Denver Browns, Denver’s top semiprofessional baseball organization. He knows more about this than Ken Burns, so come meet him. Bring all the baseball fans you know!
At 7:00 pm The Michael Vlatkevich Trio will be here, featuring Michael Vlatkovich, of Portland OR, on trombone and Denver favorites Kent McLagan and Chris Lee on bass and percussion, respectively. Michael’s compositions are always fun and inventive. All three of these consummate musicians bring with them a hearty sense of adventure and an ease of harmony and rythm to inspire envy in the erstwhile musical. We’re happy to have them back!
We’re being graced with a performance by blues legend John Long, the one-time Denver resident to whom Homesick James passed the torch of Delta Blues maestro for our times. 7:00 pm on June 4th!
