How to prepare for a reading and why.
THE POSSESSED POSSESSIONS

Our friend, Michael, collects old blues and jazz records from the early 1900’s, and newspapers from that same era. He especially loves comics sections from those ancient papers and tabloids. We met him and his lovely wife, Lila, recently in Toledo, Ohio, to visit the marvellous Glass Pavilion, which is part of the Toledo Museum of Art. During dinner that evening, Dave turned to me and said he’d bought a box of newspapers from the 1880’s that, even though they smelled like they’d been sitting in a musty attic for 100 years – and they probably were – the newsprint was still readable. Yet, Michael said, there was something a little strange about his treasures.
