Zinc Bar Reading Series

(Bewteen Thompson and Sullivan)

New York, New York

Frank Lima was born in New York City in Spanish Harlem, 1939. His parents were Mexican and Puerto Rican. He received a Master's from Columbia University in 1975. During the 60's and 70's he published three books of poetry and was included in many anthologies. In the late 70's, Lima dropped out of the poetry world (although he continued to write) to devote his time to family and pursue a career in the culinary arts. Trained in his youth in classical French cooking, he is now a teacher at the New York Restaurant School.

Inventory (Hard Press) is Lima's first collection of poetry in twenty-five years. The best of his long out-of-print poetry from the 60's and 70's as well as a wealth of material from the last two decades.

Hailing from Brooklyn by way of Minnesota, San Francisco, and Colorado Springs, Chris Martin is a teacher, rapper, and poet. American Music is his first book. He wrote it for you and other strangers.
