anderbo at KGB

1. Aziz Friedrich’s word about Foreigners. 2. Florin, in the audience, is doing PhD in antrophology and came to listen to some good fiction.

A wire for literary birds. A sea for fiction mermaids. A glass of freshly made lemonade to a thirsty poet-kid. That’s what KGB Bar is to literary fans, writers, poets, journalists and other creatures.

1. Jennifer Hanks in action. 2. Lauren Waterman reading her hilarious fiction about dirty little boyfriends.

And so was Wednesday night, because literary mag anderbo hosted a reading consisting of some of its favorite authors. The drinks were nicely cold, the atmosphere was red, the readers read great stuff and Rick Rofihe, editor in chief of anderbo, was funny in his own unconventional way.

1. Maria Modrovich read a short story called “Bratislava” about a girl finding her missing father. 2. Rick Rofihe introducing the readers and reminiscing about old times of anderbo.

We heard Wayne Conti from Mercer Street Books & Records; Mac Barret, who according to his own words lives in present-day Brooklyn and 1920’s Paris; Jennifer Hanks, anderbo’s editor at Large; Maria Modrovich, Slovak fiction writer and a publicist; Lauren Waterman whose non-fiction was in Vogue; Aziz Friedrich who knows a lot about intimate habits of different nationalities; Tumi Johnson who was raised in Nigeria and Tennessee.
