He received his B.A. in English from C.S.U.N. where he studied verse with ANN STANFORD. New Alliance Records has released his Personal Crime, new and selected poems from 1966-1991, on CD and cassette audio recording, and Homes on CD. Northup has made a living as an actor for thirty years, acting in thirty-seven films, including Taxi Driver (1976 Palme d’Or winner at Cannes), Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, Over the Edge(starring role) and The Silence of the Lambs (1991 Oscar winner for Best Picture). Harry is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. LEWIS MACADAMS, in the LA Weekly, wrote, “Northup is the poet laureate of east Hollywood.”


lewis macadams

"Dear Oxygen is a vivid lyrical romp through many tender shared realities, vestigial memories with poetry’s departed great ones (Whalen, Corso, Dorn, Jim Carroll) invoked here as well in heart & ear.   Marvelous love poems, and poems in the company of friends.   Conversations and meditations.   Historical nexus Bolinas beckons and is a site of Outrider survival.   MacAdams’s eye is sharp, his ecological consciousness astute, as he bucks the heartbreaks of modern man and takes on reclamation of the Los Angeles River.   This is a welcome collection, so needed in these times, with a shout out of gratitude to the editor Opstedal who gets it just right.   It is indeed the air to breathe." 
– ANNE WALDMAN 


The bookstore will be open before and after the reading to purchase books and the authors will be available for signing after the reading.
