This reading is the Lawrence release for local writer Jim McCrary's first "real" book, "All That" — a collection of chapbooks dating from 1987 to 2008 published by ManyPenny Press. Critics and peers have been generous in praise: "Peek inside," writes poet Richard Lopez on the back cover of McCrary's book, "and you'll find poetics with a tough no-bullsh*t intelligence, yet with a language made of love and tenderness." Check out our preview of the event, featuring a podcast interview with Jim McCrary.
