Don DeLillo and A.M. Homes Protest Imprisonment of Chinese Author Liu Xiaobo

On this snowy New Year’s Eve morning, a team of famous PEN America members gathered on the steps of the New York Public Library to protest the 11-year sentence of Chinese writer Liu Xiaobo for the crime of subversion.

As you can see by this exclusive GalleyCat video, the list of speakers at this dramatic event included: E.L. Doctorow, Don DeLillo, A.M. Homes, and Edward Albee.

Here’s more from the release: “There are currently almost 1,000 writers on PEN’s list of writers and journalists in danger because of their work. Leading the list is Liu Xiaobo, one of China’s most prominent writers and a past president and member of the Independent Chinese PEN Center, which is doing on-the-ground PEN advocacy in China. Liu was convicted of ‘inciting subversion of state power’ for co-authoring ‘Charter 08,’ a petition calling for political and human rights reforms in China, and for seven sentences in five articles he published on the internet that are critical of Chinese authorities.”

Days of Poetry and Punk Rock

“In the 1970s, the connection between poetry and rock & roll was utter. They were the same people. People who wrote poems were in bands. That didn’t happen again, it seemed to me, until the 90s.” That’s a quote from poet and GalleyCat reader, Eileen Myles.

Since her first 1974 reading at the punk rock mecca CBGB, Myles published more than 20 volumes of poetry, fiction, articles, plays, and libretti. GalleyCat caught up with Myles, talking about the recession and her historic experiences in New York City’s East Village.

The interview came during a poetry reading celebrating the release of “Poems from the Women’s Movement” anthology. GalleyCat also interviewed Erica Jong about the lack of publishing parity, poet Honor Moore about “male approval desire”, and beat poet Anne Waldman about preserving chapbooks in this digital age.

Erica Jong Knocks Publishing Parity

On Thursday evening, Honor Moore, editor of “Poems from the Women’s Movement,” hosted a poetry reading at Saint Peter’s Church in Manhattan–bringing together generations of renowned poets to celebrate the release of the Library of America anthology.

In this video interview, guest author Erica Jong shared her thoughts about women in publishing and her current project. Jong joined Susan Griffin, Toi Derricotte, Joan Larkin, Jean Valentine, Eileen Myles, Fran Winant, and Anne Waldman.

GalleyCat interviewed a number of these poets, getting their thoughts on publishing, feminism, and writing during the recession. More video will follow next week.
