Donovan Cleckley joined me on a Tiwtter space the other night to hold another edition of Gender Critical Story Hour. He read selections from the work of Shel Silverstein. We discussed the controversial poet’s biography, the themes of his work, and the value of the poetic form for dissecting genderwoo. I even recited a Silverstein poem I learned decades ago. This was a lot of fun and I intend to bring back Gender Critical Story Hour in two weeks, after the holiday.
