Dr. Gonzalves will discuss the Smithsonian Institution’s ambitious programming challenge—to present tie-based music-related events every day in 2019. It’s also the planet’s largest music museum. You will hear an insider’s take on the state of research, collections and exhibition work at an institution tasked with the "increase and diffusion" of knowledge.
Steven Dunn, aka Pothole (because he’s deep in these streets), is the author of two novels from Tarpaulin Sky Press—Potted Meat (2016) and water & power (2018)—and a chapbook, Our Migrations (Business Bear Press, 2018). Potted Meat, which Laird Hunt described as “full of wonder and silence and beauty and strangeness and ugliness and sadness and truth and hope,” has been adapted to film by Foothills Productions. Dunn was born and raised in West Virginia, and is currently an MFA student at Stetson University, and an MFA instructor at Regis University.
The reading will be followed by refreshments.
