Lawrence turns 100!

To celebrate our great poet and friend, we dipped into the New Directions editorial files and found correspondence about A Coney Island of the Mind (first published in 1958) between Lawrence and the late New Directions publisher, Griselda Ohannessian.

Birthday celebrations are happening in San Francisco and all over the country this weekend.
Visit the City Lights website for all the details.

Happy Birthday, Lawrence! 100 years young.
