I'm very excited to be curating a weekend of events in mid-August as something of a last hurrah before the baby comes! If the baby does come, however, before or during (!!) these events, poet Sara Wintz promises to host in my stead!
First, I'm putting together a little Compline showcase on Saturday, August 11th at the Niebyl-Proctor Marxist Library in Berkeley (in coordination with the weekend's Free School activities) featuring David Brazil, CJ Martin (visiting from Austin), Eleni Stecopoulos and myself; Compline books will be on hand, including Eleni's remarkable new chapbook Daphnephoria and CJ Martin's Two Books, and Brazil will read from the Economy project, which we'll publish in early 2013.
The following evening, Sunday, August 12th, we're hosting a East Bay book launch for Rob Halpern's Music for Porn at Woolsey Heights (thx to friends Andrew Kenower and Paul Ebenkamp!). CJ Martin will be on hand to share a second set, and we hope to foster a Q & A with Rob after the reading...
Please spread the word, and I hope to see you at one or both of these events!
