Lost & Found has established itself as one of the most exciting developments on the literary and cultural scene, creating a new model for cultural recuperation. Those who have come to our events, like the tribute to Muriel Rukeyser, the electrifying reading by Diane di Prima, Jerome Rothenberg’s 80th birthday celebration, or the reunion of old friends Joanne Kyger and Michael Rumaker, know very well what kind of energy Lost & Found has generated.
Those getting to know the scholarship of our graduate students realize that a new generation of cultural critics and literary historians is in the making. And publishers are taking notice as Lost & Found Elsewhere embarks on two new projects: Michael Rumaker’s Robert Duncan in San Francisco (with selected correspondence & interview), edited by Ammiel Alcalay and Megan Paslawski, due out from City Lights in 2012, and the stunning discovery of Muriel Rukeyser’s unknown Spanish Civil War novel, Savage Coast (Costa Brava), edited and annotated by Rowena Kennedy-Epstein, due out from Feminist Press in 2013.
We hope you enjoy Series III!
