Creature Press at ETERNiDAY: Books, Broadsides, a Reading, a Panel

In case you're able to make it to the Queens Museum in Flushing this Saturday, Creature Press will be part of the ETERNiDAY event in three ways: 1) books and new broadsides for sale as part of the book fair, 2)  a reading that includes Cassandra Gillig, whose work appears on the new CP broadsides, and 3) a panel discussion on "alternative forms" of publication for poets, writers, and artists. 
Book Fair
12:00 - 6:00 pm

Reading: Small Press Spotlight
1:15 - 2:00 pm
Nightboat Books (John Keene, Gracie Leavitt), Creature Press (Cassandra Gillig), Futurepoem (Mina Pam Dick)

Alternative Publishing and Literary Curating 
3:30 - 4:30 pm
John Harkey (Creature Press), Stephen Motika (Nightboat Books), Sol Aramendi (Project Luz), Christopher Stackhouse (This Red Door Series). This panel will explore independent publishing and literary events. Presenting a variety of perspectives, the panel hopes to inspire poets, writers and artists to search for alternative forms of distribution for their work.

March 5: ETERNiDAY, The Queens Poet Lore Festival!

I can't believe that I get to be a part of this insane event (browse the schedule/roster via the link below!). Please come visit if you can. Look for Creature Press as part of the book fair, and look for a couple CP poets to read, too.

I'll have some Box-books, some copies of Absolute Hist, some ephemera, and some brand new broadsides! Official announcement on those very soon, but here's a peek at one of the sheets in its lovely-raw state:
