TIFA (new name, same poetry-hating event) announced in a stealth stunt (Globe got a behind-the-paywall exclusive story while all other books media only got the PR on Friday after that ran) they have hired a new artistic director. Not everyone is happy. Questions abound: why another white guy? why the secrecy? will he continue the IFOA tradition of being a snotty douchebag? will he wear pompous cravats? In fairness, I don’t know anything about this fellow and he might be the best. Let’s hope for it.
