video from the HOWL event

Oct. 7, 2015 was the 60th anniversary of the first reading of Allen Ginsberg’s “Howl.” To honor the occasion, Malvern Books hosted a crowd-sourced performance of the poem, featuring people from all over Austin. The event was organized and hosted by Brett Reeves and me, and it emphasized the religious nature of the piece, combining elements of worship from various spiritual traditions into one magical night of community.

It was a real cool time.
