Editor Book Review "The Beats at Naropa"

[caption id="attachment_395" align="alignleft" width="180" caption="Beats at Naropa reviewed by BOA Editor Peter Conners"]Beats at Naropa reviewed by BOA Editor Peter Conners[/caption] BOA Editors Thom Ward and Peter Conners are both active in the literary community - teaching, giving talks, writing and publishing their own work, and reviewing books by non-BOA authors. The current issue of Rain Taxi on-line features a review of Beats at Naropa: An Anthology (Coffee House Press, 2009) by Peter Conners wherein Conners says things like: "As paterfamilias of the school, Ginsberg gets his say throughout this collection, as does its presiding spirit Anne Waldman, who co-edited the book with librarian and Naropa alumna Laura Wright. Many other heavyweights of the Beat Generation also speak through its pages: William S. Burroughs, Gregory Corso, Gary Snyder, and Lawrence Ferlinghetti, among others. However, it’s the lesser-known figures of the Beat scene that make this book a valuable addition to the library of Beat commentary." Click here to read the Rain Taxi review of [Beats at Naropa]
