Vote for Louisville’s Best Writer
This week marks Hunter S. Thompson’s birthday (July 18, 1937), so we thought we’d stick a thumb in culture’s eye in memory of Louisville’s most celebrated iconoclast.
We want you to vote on who you think is Possibility City’s best writer.
Yes, it’s a vulgar display of populist anti-intellectualism, but it’s nothing less than the world’s preeminent Gonzo journalist would expect.
To further obliterate the line between fact, fiction, and entertainment, we’ll also attempt to bias the results by bribing a few lucky voters with a selection of books generously inscribed with a note from Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson.
So go ahead and vote. When you’re done, you’ll see the results and you’ll be able to sign up for the fabulously literate giveaways.
