Thanks again to all the good folks at this year’s Small Press Festival in Pittsburgh, who made our first public foray into the Small Press Wonder Tent so effortless and enjoyable. I bopped down to Carlisle to pick up Kari Larsen and we zipped over to Pittsburgh via the the tollway through the first blush of early-autumn foliage. It was great to browse and chat with the other vendors/writers/artists and to get such a positive response to our catalog. The overwhelming “I-must-pick-this-up-and-check-it-out” title was Terry Kirts’ To the Refrigerator Gods. We set up next to David McNamara’s fabulous sunnyoutside table and enjoyed two days of friendly, engaging, and helpful bookchat (as well as a bit of Red Sox/DamnYankees banter). I met Noel Sloboda, whose poems I first encountered back when I was on staff at West Branch; had a lovely meeting & chat with Karen Weyant & her partner; finally met the awesome RJ Gibson; and got to hang out & have breakfast with the delightful Jeff Oaks. So many beautiful books–I wanted one of each! Already looking forward to doing this again next year.
Just a few days off our original schedule, we’re proud to announce the release of Terry Kirts‘ To the Refrigerator Gods, Number 8 in our Editor’s Series and a finalist for last year’s Robin Becker Chapbook Prize. Please join us in congratulating Terry, and follow this link for more information on his chapbook.
