A form of dying, losing contact with the city like that
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
The Fall 2010 issue of Lapham's Quarterly, of course, takes "The City" as its central theme, with literary and historical excerpts describing urban settlements such as Antioch, Dongguan, New York City, Atlantis, Thebes, Oaxaca, Constantinople, Bangkok, Moscow, Los Angeles, Vienna, Hiroshima, Mecca, Rome, Saigon, and many more; and this comes simultaneously with Radiolab's most recent episode, also about Cities (and the title of this post is edited from a quotation by Philip K. Dick, which appears in Lapham's Quarterly).
The event takes place down at 92Y Tribeca, 200 Hudson Street, beginning with a reception at 6:30pm. Register for the event here.
If you're able to attend in person, let me know how it goes!
