There used to be a big gray-and-green house where a six-story, multiuse apartment complex now (nearly) stands. That house was Hugo House's home. And while the literary organization will move into the lower space of the new building, there are still lots of memories to catalog and work through. Poet and Hugo House cofounder Frances McCue carries many of them with her. She and her family lived in the place for a while as she managed the business downstairs. Her husband died there. She watched a demo crew chew through the roof and knock the house down. She wrote about it all in a new book called Timber Curtain. Recent mayoral candidate and urban planner Cary Moon will join her onstage for a discussion about the glass corpse flowers blooming from our old beloved buildings.
