Event with Alisa Golden on April 27 in Berkeley

We have an exciting event coming up! Last year, I was asked by Lucy Childs (Another Room Book Arts) and Nikki Thompson (Billie Bell Book Arts, who also interviewed me) to present work at Mrs. Dalloway's Bookstore. The event evolved into a reading to celebrate five issues of Star 82 Review, the art and literary magazine I founded, design and edit.

Please join us for a short and lively reading
Sunday, April 27th at 4pm
at Mrs. Dalloway's Bookstore
2904 College Ave (near Ashby Ave), Berkeley, CA. 

I'll be setting type this week and letterpress printing the program to give away. But here is a preview of the event. We have some illustrious readers here!
