Book Report

posted February 7th, 2011

Last we spoke of Bill Callahan, we told you he was off to Spoonbill & Sugertown in Brooklyn, NY, to read from his book, Letters To Emma Bowlcut. Like UFO sightings, what we once considered myth and delusional conjecture from certified crazies is now widely believed to be fact-based and true-- Bill Callahan not only wrote a book of fiction, he is reading from it in specially selected public places!
