John Wall Barger’s U.S. launch for his new book, The Mean Game (Palimpsest Press), was on April 24th, at A Novel Idea bookstore on Passyunk, in Philadelphia. It was an extremely sweet event, hosted by Fayyaz Vellani, with dynamic readings by Ernest Hilbert, Tim Fitts, Vasiliki Katsarou, Kyle Brown-Watson, and Cris Iacoponi.
