Reading Frenzy ~ An Independent Press Emporium

Red Bat Press Open Studio, Oct. 2nd!

Ever wonder where all those remarkable bridge prints come from? Well now you can find out for yourself as Carey Bye will be opening up her studio this Saturday! Tour the Bat Cave Studios, buy discounted postcards or press your own card on Carey's Bede-Hibbitt tabletop letterpress. There's even a woodcut demo at 2pm. The Bathtub Art Museum also has a new installation up by M@ Leavitt, and the garden we expect is in full bloom. You can't go wrong! For more information, head over to the event's page here.

Urban Scout Reading Tonight, Sept. 15th

September 15, 2010:

Join us tonight at Reading Frenzy to hear excerpts from Urban Scout's new book Rewild or Die: Revolution and Renaissance at the End of Civilization. Along with a reading, Urban Scout will give short tutorials on some of his most beloved workshops. In anticipation of his appearance at Reading Frenzy, I caught up with him to discuss the new book, possible film projects, and the end of civilization.

Future Tense turns 20 !

Believe it or not, Future Tense Books has been around for two solid decades. The brainchild of Kevin Sampsell, this Portland-via-Spokane based micro press, has become a staple of consistently awesome publications. The night promises appearances by Richard Meltzer, Zachary Schomburg, and Chelsea Martin (Oakland) among a dozen more. With such an abundance of snarky talented writers on deck, the night can only mean two things: readings from the cream o' the crop and tipsy toasts. Don't miss the fun!

Disjecta plays host, September 24th from 8-11pm.
