This week on the Friday Roundtable, three artists examine the things they wish they'd known when they started their careers, what they might have done differently, and what they believe the role of the artist to be.
This discussion was inspired by Guante's blog post, "Six Things I Wish I Knew When I Was Getting Started as an Artist."
WHAT ROUNDTABLE GUESTS ARE READING:
Dessa is reading "The Poisoner's Handbook." She says, "It's half science-y, half a trashy, supermarket history of pathology."
Mark Nelson is reading Jonathan Franzen's book of essays, "How to be Alone."
Guante is reading poets from Writebloody Publishing, including "These Are The Breaks" by Idris Goodwin.
