Great read! The words create such clear images and evoke so many feelings. You can't ask for anything more. - Nancy Friedman
We can't ask for anything more than comments like this, the latest 5-star review on Amazon for Mr. Boardwalk:
Louis Greenstein had a great time reading at the 215 Festival. His next gig is at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 12, at the Conshohocken Free Library (301 Fayette Street, Conshohocken, PA 19428, 610-825-1656).
The 215 Festival, centered this year on Philly's legendary South Street, celebrates the "written, spoken and visualized word." It's coming up next week, and one of the events is a reading on Friday, October 24, sponsored by the Philadelphia Review of Books at Brickbat Books, 709 S. 4th Street, 7:00 p.m.
Louis Greenstein will be there to read from Mr. Boardwalk. Other notable readers and performers include Lee Klein, Adam Fitzgerald, Sugar Tongue Slim, Kimberly Ann Southwick, and Alex Pearlman.
And on the next night, Saturday, same time, same place, The American Poetry Review is presenting Dorothea Lasky, the cover poet from the September/October issue of the magazine.
We promise that South Street will look a whole lot more festive than it does in the picture above.
