Sal Castronovo (1967 - )

A high school teacher, Mr. Castronovo brings in strange and wonderful experiments to delight his students. ''Studying fungus is a way to mold young minds,'' says Mr. Castronovo. Trouble is, he doesn't teach science. But each Monday night he hosts a Spoken Word at the The Pourhouse, one of the last bastions of asininery. There, he reads from a large collection of notebooks, diaries, notes, envelopes, napkins, and menus.
