The Words and Art of Robert R. Branaman Issue
I came across Bob Branaman from a photo of him and Charles Plymell taken in the 1950s. His name is also CCd on emails I get from time to time from Charlie. I quick google brought up the world of Bob Branaman that I had missed–that much of America missed also. The ones that didn’t are the lucky ones. When S.A. Griffin talked to me about him and when I learned that S.A. had promoted his art, I knew it was time to meet him. There is so much more to the man, the artist than appears here.
The Rusty Truck began as simply wanting to gather the family in one place, kinda like grandma did at least twice a year and publish the best poetry out there. Now, the Truck wants to add to this–to chronicle a part of history. Robert Branaman among others are part of that history.
