Louisville, KY: the literary renaissance, circa 1993. First Printing. Single Sheet. A broadside/poster (11"x17") announcing a reading by Gregory Corso, one of the founding members of the Beat Generation, at the University of Louisville on November 20, (probably) 1993. Reproduction of a photograph of Corso gazing at a large statue of Christ on the cross, taken by Allen Ginsberg, on which text is super-imposed. With quotes about Corso from William S. Burroughs ("Gregory is indeed one of the Daddies"), Ginsberg & Jack Kerouac. The literary renaissance, a non-profit organization that has issued many important chapbooks & broadsides by iconic Beat figures, published this item & also sponsored the event it announces. A very rare & exciting Corso collectible, in very fine condition with only a few minor creases at bottom right corner; four very light horizontal creases along left edge, small amount of rubbing along lower left edge.
Item is currently mounted on stiff board, in protective wrap, will be shipped rolled in tube. Very Fine. [Item #2000]
