Unbound Book Festival – Sat. April 22

A quick update about the Unbound Book Festival.

We will have our new LED installation at Stephens College all day Saturday, April 22 (not Friday and Saturday as previously announced).

Here’s why you should stop by:

See you there!

 

Lisa Torem’s Forthcoming Publication

We would like congratulate our September writer, Lisa Torem, on a forthcoming publication. Her LED contribution was the memorable poem, Packrats Her new piece is a short story, which will be included in the next volume of The Cost of PaperHaving heard one of her short stories at the LED Anthology book launch, we have no doubt that you’ll want to read her prose, too.

We will share more about Lisa’s achievement when we have more information, and when the publication is available, so check back.

We hope you all look into The Cost of Paper, as it shares much in common with our interests in and approach to publishing. We enjoy seeing another publisher play with the economic and material constraints of publishing in a way that fuels creativity and helps illuminate the machinations of the literary world. And, of course, we hope you join us in supporting and celebrating Lisa’s writing!

“Lampyridae” at 57th Street Books

Finally! Here are some images from our current installation, Kelsey Hoff’s poem, Lampyridae, at 57th Street Books.

As we mentioned before, we are a little behind schedule, so you still have plenty of time to come see this fantastic window display (thanks to 57th Street Books for the thematic selection of books and surprises) in person. We’ll be sharing more documentation soon, but please enjoy these images in the meantime.

May Installation at Hyde Park Records

We are pleased to announce that our next installation, Lampyridae by Kelsey Hoff, will be at Hyde Park Records, at

Hyde Park Records is open from 11-8 every day, so if you’re into music (and books) you should stop by during business hours. As always, you’ll be able to read our display 24/7.

Stay tuned for updates and photos.

 

Installing “Cables” at RoscoeBooks

Here are a few images from this morning’s installation at RoscoeBooks (including Carley entering the ultra-top-secret password into our display).

We carefully gaffed our extension cord over the bookcases, which took longer than it should have because we kept getting distracted by all the books in front of us. If you like literature, then you’ll definitely want to stop by and browse for yourself!

We’ll be sharing more photos of the Caroline S. Knickmeier’s poem, Cables, soon, so check back.
