“Mailer Reading Halted.” Article by unidentified writer. New York Times, 7 February. An official at the 92nd Street Y.M.H.A. ordered the curtain down on Mailer for reading poems that he found obscene at a 6 February reading. Mailer answered that “an administrator is no judge of literature.” Allen Ginsberg was in the audience and defended Mailer.
