11 August 2012


Please don't forget to join us this weekend for two huge events: a Compline Press showcase at the Niebyl-Proctor Marxist Library on Saturday (as part of the Bay Area Public School's "Summer School" programming) and an East Bay launch for Rob Halpern's Music for Porn on Sunday. CJ Martin and Julia Drescher are in town for two more days, Eleni promises to read from the Poetics of Healing manuscript, this might be your last chance to chat with Rob and Lee before they hit the road for Michigan, and there will be a brand new super-limited-edition David Brazil chapbook available for FREE while supplies last (and when it's gone, it's gone for good!). Oh, and I think there's a dance party after the event on Saturday (and likely Sunday, too, since it's at Woolsey Heights!). If you're in town, celebrate the end of summer with us! Here's the pertinent information:
