Pro Wrestling, Writing and Spencer Gordon

With Wrestlemania XXXI receding into the rearview, we'll be joined by Spencer Gordon, author of Cosmo (Coach House 2012) and editor of The Puritan magazine, to talk about how the world of sports entertainment has impacted his writing and that of his contemporaries. We'll also be playing a few exclusive wrestling poems brought to us by a stable of literary superstars.
