    Matthea Harvey's 'Tabloids' mashes word pictures with imaginative art
    True story: A teenager saw me with Matthea Harvey's new book of poems as I sat with it in a café and asked if she could look at it. She was the scowly sort, angry tattoo on her shoulder, who I thought was going to ask me if I had a cigarette; not,...

    The three words that become hard to say in The Avett Brothers’ eponymously titled song “I and Love and You” came pretty easily after the band’s headlining concert Thursday at Musikfest’s main Steel Stage. The Avett Brothers...
  • The Avett Brothers infuse Musikfest with energy, and music, that's real

    Robin Williams: Five performances to remember
    It wasn't his first film to do so, but the 1989 drama "Dead Poets Society" reminded millions that Robin Williams was an actor as well as a comic maelstrom as well as a star. The man introduced to those same millions a decade earlier in "Mork & Mindy"...
  • Marvin Tate on 'The Amazing Mister Orange'

    Marvin Tate on 'The Amazing Mister Orange'
    Marvin Tate knows the exact moment when poetry became his calling. The North Lawndale native grew up in a home without a TV or radio, where the family entertained one another with songbooks and reading aloud. So it didn't strike him as notable when his...
