Friends, don’t miss your chance to celebrate Travis Cebula’s stunning new book of poetry, Ithaca: he’ll read at 7pm at Unnameable Books in Brooklyn, joined by fellow BLP author Sarah Suzor (The Principle Agent), Sara Nolan, and Daniel Dissinger. (Also, stay tuned for Travis and Sarah’s forthcoming BLP collaboration, After the Fox…it’s going to be killer.)
This Sunday, February 17, Eric Gamalinda will bring one of the stories from his transcendent collection People Are Strange to the stage at Le Poisson Rouge in NYC. We’re beyond excited for this event! Click here for details (and here to order a copy of People Are Strange).
Hurricane Sandy has waylaid our blogosphere a bit, but we had such a good time at the Boston Book Festival and want to send a belated thank you to everyone who pulled the event together. It was especially fun to share a table with BLP author Helen Marie Casey, whose two books–Inconsiderate Madness, a poetry chapbook about Mary Dyer; and My Dear Girl, a biography of the artist Florence Hosmer–demonstrate the kind of intelligence and scope that make our list so exciting. You can buy both titles here. And we’ll see you next year, Boston!
If you’ll be near Boston this weekend, make sure to visit Copley Square and the Boston Book Festival! BLP will be holding court at Booth 14 from 10am-5pm, showing off our ridiculously awesome catalog. Special bonus: author Helen Marie Casey, whose biography of Florence Hosmer is so gorgeous, will sign copies of her book at noon. Hope to see you there!
Starting October 3, BLP and Dzanc Books will participate in the 2012 Great Write Off, a fundraiser to support a bunch of worth literary non-profits, including the Dzanc Prize and the Writer in Residence Program. Both Diane Goettel and Angela Leroux-Lindsey will represent BLP, and would love your sponsorship (even $5 makes a difference). Click here to sponsor the Dzanc/BLP writer of your choice. Thanks in advance for your support!
Save the date: our brilliant and lovely Executive Editor, Diane Goettel, will take part in a writer’s symposium sponsored by the Hong Kong International Literary Festival on Saturday, October 13, at 1:00pm. Her panel is titled “The Writer’s Life,” and there is no doubt Diane will be an exciting and relevant participant. Don’t miss it!
