Columbia University radio station WKCR’s Blair McClendon interviewed Triple Canopy editors Sam Frank, Lucy Ives, and Dan Visel about the annual marathon reading of Gertrude Stein’s The Making of Americans, which took place in January, and about Triple Canopy’s new book, Corrected Slogans: Reading and Writing Conceptualism.

During the weekend of January 18–20, an Triple Canopy invited scores of New York–based artists, writers, publishers, scholars, and other collaborators to gather in Greenpoint to perform the entirety of Stein’s enormously long and allegedly unreadable novel. The reading lasted for 52 hours. The marathon inaugurated Triple Canopy’s fifth year. There were coffee and donuts during the dawn walk-in hours; there was borscht at dinnertime; we toasted at the beginning and end. We tweeted (#MakingUSA) the Americans as they progressed.
