Mary Soderstrom, a Montreal-based writer, whose new book Green City: People, Nature and Urban Places has recently been published by V?hicule Press of Montreal. With nine books to her credit, Soderstrom is well-known to Canadian readers. Her new book uses 11 cities–Chicago among them–as starting points for exploring the ways that people have brought nature into cities over history.
This reading will be co-sponsored by the Center for Neighborhood Technology, and someone from the center will introduce Soderstrom.

The Return of Ronald Thomas Clontle

RTC on Johnny Cash:

It’s often forgotten that the Man Dressed in Black was the first country singer to tackle taboo subject matter. Look no further than “Sunday Morning Coming Down” — Cash’s recounting of an acid trip that ends in a chainsaw murder. 1957’s “Ballad of a Teenage Queen” is, as far as I know, the first song documenting the everyday trials and tribulations of a lowly transvestite. I’m looking forward to hearing what this national treasure serves up next.
