In observation of our impending second anniversary, we’ve decided to add a splash of color to this April’s promotional images.
To that end, stop by Middlesex Lounge on April 16 to help us celebrate! On Monday, April 16 at 7pm, Kimberly Duncan-Mooney, Timothy Patrick McCarthy, Randolph Pfaff, and Kate Sloan will share their words and work and you’ll love every minute!
So be sure to be there and help us kick off our third year right!
(Also, last year, there were cookies–perhaps balloons this year?)

Timothy is shining like a new dime.
Timothy Patrick McCarthy teaches history, literature, and public policy at Harvard University, where he also directs the Sexuality, Gender, and Human Rights Program at the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School. He has published four books–The Radical Reader: A Documentary History of the American Radical Tradition (2003); Prophets of Protest: Reconsidering the History of American Abolitionism (2006); Protest Nation: Words That Inspired a Century of American Radicalism (2010); and The Indispensable Zinn: The Essential Writings of the People’s Historian (2012). His forthcoming book, Stonewall’s Children: A Modern Story of Liberation, Loss, and Love, will be published by the New Press in 2013. A frequent media commentator, Timothy has published his work in The Daily Beast, Boston Globe, and The Huffington Post, and is a regular blogger for The Nation. He lives in Cambridge with his husband and their adorable black lab puppy, Jeter, who is named for the best shortstop of the best baseball team in history.
Timothy is the confessional writer for the April 16 reading.

We’re hopping over at AP–the second print issue of apt just came out and we’re running a contest to celebrate–but I wanted to make sure that you mark your dance cards for the next Literary Firsts reading.
So, dust off your fanciest shoes and join us at 7pm on Monday, April 16 at the Middlesex Lounge when Kimberly Duncan-Mooney will be our fiction writer, Kate Sloan will be our essayist, Randolph Pfaff will be our poet, and Tim McCarthy will be our confessional reader.
On a personal note, that will mark the start of our third year, so we’re all going to have to sing happy birthday to LF. I promise not to cry.
