Monday Memo February 4, 2019

This week we're talking about:
  • Following last week's very popular "Look Up" by Lea Carpenter, we're unlocking more new fiction from new APS No. 27, free for all to read for a week. This week, encounter "The Tramp" by John Haskell (pictured, above, in the crush at our recent party).
  • The new season of A Public Space Academy, our nights and weekends school for everyone, with new classes taught by Claire Messud, Leslie Jamison, Dorothea Lasky, and more.
  • In the New Yorker, APS contributing editor Robert Sullivan writes about artist Pat Steir, and her landmark new commission for the Barnes Foundation.
  • Desperate Literature, the bookstore in Madrid, is running its Literature Prize competition, and winners receive a week to write at Civitella Ranieri, the arts castle in Italy, the opportunity to participate in public readings in Madrid, at Shakespeare & Company in Paris, Burley Fisher and Second Shelf Books in London, wide publication, and more. Take a chance!
  • APS managing editor Megan Cummins reads from new work at KGB, as part of an evening presented by CRAFT Magazine.
