In honor of a great local poet, Jake Adam York, whose untimely death in December of 2012, left an entire community of family, friends and students reeling. York was a professor at Denver University and published three books of poetry. He was a great proponent of Southern cooking and especially BBQ; one of his finest poems is about the ways in which food brings us together.

Friedman shows in his new book, Wilde in America, the true inventor of modern celebrity lived and died long before any of those fame seekers.
