Interview in Art Voices

An interview I did with Peter Anderson is online now here. The print magazine came out June 1.
Peter Anderson runs Verna Press, and he is running printing presses out of an old New Orleans beauty shop. He occasionally does art and poetry shows there, and he calls the space The Beauty Shop. People in the neighborhood who remember the original seem to love this. He has recently purchased this gigantic printing press, which last I heard was driving him insane. There are a bag of hair clippings on the wall when you walk in that represent some of the people at the grand inaugural poetry event where Dave Brinks read. It is a beauty shop so there was hair cutting, and it is New Orleans so we keep things like that where we can see them.
