This is a short segment from a longer film we will be releasing at the Mary’s Dust book launch on Saturday, October 21. EVENT INFORMATION.
Taking a much needed day off after three book launches in three different cities, we hoped on the BART and went to yet another city! Ha!
All I can say is I forget how hot and lovely it can be in San Francisco in October, when the weather has turned toward winter in Seattle.
We had a nice chat with Brent, Laura, and met the whole gang that has been helping us come up to speed with having a distributor. We did not get to see where our books FLY OFF THE SHELVES and into the hands of readers, but recognize some places are just better left to ones imagination. We did see endless shelves of small press books tended with care by this so important non-profit. Our literary scene would be so diminished without them.
Small Press Distribution: you can order books directly from them.
Hosted by the fine folks at The Green Arcade, we celebrated the publication of Aaron Shurin’s Flowers & Sky: Two Talks on Sunday night.
Look at that cake!
Thanks to everyone that came out to listen!
We were pleased to once again be hosted by the Seattle Academy for Arts and Sciences for the book launch for Mary’s Dust, new poems by Melinda Mueller and music by Lori Goldston.
We also premiered the new film by Christian Anderson about the book! SEE IT HERE.
This space is definitely my favorite in town for holding a reading and a party! Perfect space downstairs, nice mixing space upstairs!
Thanks for everyone who came out in the blustery, terrible weather. What a stormy night!
We had our first book event out of Seattle! A fantastic evening with Maya Jewell Zeller and Carrie DeBacker with special musical guest Liz Rognes.
The Bartlett is a fantastic space in Spokane and the folks their easy to work with and great problem-solvers when it came to our film we wanted to show. It could not have gone better! So thanks!
And thanks to all the listeners and readers in Spokane that came out for the show.
“…the poems in “Alchemy” in particular, partially because of the interdisciplinary influence, play with space and line and syntactical disruption and fragment in ways that a lot of other contemporary poets are also playing – this deconstructivist approach resulting, I think many of us would say, from a fractured political and social climate, and from the sense of disorder and stress that so many of us feel.”

I wonder if I will ever go to a book show and sell more books than I end up buying! And curses for putting us across from Copper Canyon Press!
New books from Alternating Current, The Mountain Press, Willow Springs, plus some subscriptions to help keep a pulse on writing from outside of Seattle with CutBank, Fugue Literary Journal. Plus if that was not enough books by Lost Horse Press and Barrow Street. And, of course, ended up with three more from Copper Canyon Press due some recommendations from Bill Carty. Time to finally read The Lice.
