Haniffa, Max, Kristina, The Good Slamaritan, David Leo Sirois, Troy, Sam, Anna, Amel&Alberto&Britney, Lucy Gelman, Evan, Bruce, Victor and our featured poet: Claire Trévien launching her new book “The Shipwrecked House.”

Are you full Indian? Are you married? Did your parents arranged your marriage? What’s that dot mean? Do you worship cows? Why do you worship cows?
