Given the title of Frank Rogaczewski’s book The Fate of Humanity in Verse we couldn’t help but post this photo from a recent Borders closing posted on buzzfeed.com. But while Borders fades into the distance, Tamale Hut Cafe Reading Series is booming, so it can’t all bad. Right? Right?
So naysayers, soothsayers, sayersayers and nosayers alike, come on down and celebrate the Literary Apocalypse with us this Saturday, April 16th @ 7pm, when Frank will read his poetry; some new, some old, some prophetic, but all good. Oh, and, you can buy his latest book for $10. Open mic as always and don’t forget the tinga and tamales!
I’m telling you, if Borders had tamales and tinga, like we do, they wouldn’t be in this mess. Because once you pair tamales and good reading, there’s no going back; you’re hooked for life.
