The Middle Earth collection includes correspondence, manuscripts (both published and unpublished) and audio by Charles Bukowski, Andrei Codrescu, Richard Grossinger, Michael McClure, John Wieners, and Patti Smith, among others. The Main Point materials chronicle the history of a venue that introduced Philadelphia to many then-obscure artists like Joni Mitchell, Arlo Guthrie and Bruce Springsteen. main point sketchMSALL.jpgmiddle earth postcardSMALL.jpg
