From the Hip Book Launch!

So a week from today we’ll be celebrating the release of the new book! The event will be held at Karma Birdhouse (aka Maglienero’s) at 47 Maple Street in Burlington at 7PM. So mark your calendars: Thursday, September 18th. Food, drink, readings by three other super-talented authors (Angie Palm, Shelagh Connor Shapiro, Malisa Garlieb), an old school hip hop mix put together by yours truly, and general merrymaking. Would love to see you there!

From the Hip has arrived!

Awesomeness! My new book, From the Hip, a Concise History of Hip Hop (in Sonnets) has arrived, all wrapped up in the dope designs of Mike Balzano.

It’s a free country (or, you know what I mean…), so you’re absolutely within your rights to check out the collaboration through Amazon. But if you’re even slightly more awesome, check it out here:
