Place: Unnameable Books, 600 Vanderbilt, Brooklyn
The Corresponding Society is thrilled to launch the !How Now! chapbook series! Feast your senses on the wild morels and wonderful whirlpools issuing from Trinie Dalton’s ("Escape Mushroom Style") and Popahna Brandes' (“The Sea In Me/The Riddle We Heard”) rich and dreamy fiction. And don't forget to cozy up with Chanelle Bergeron's fresh herbal lyric, "Litttle Breather." Each of these three new works are encrusted with gems, musical bridges, hidden doors, and mysterious outcomes -- don’t you want to know more?
The books are brightly colored and beautifully pressed; pocketsized and available for sale; so please stop in for readings, red wine, homebrew, and moontalk. TCS will also be introducing Robert Snyderman's imprint, Urgent Series, featuring a reading from "correspondent" Lonely Christopher and Snyderman himself, plus, perhaps, a brief but engaging word on the metaphysical implications of Urgent!
Please, come! It should be fun. We haven't done this in a while, and it might be a while more before we gather again!
Trinie Dalton's books include Wide Eyed (Akashic), Dear New Girl or Whatever Your Name Is (McSweeney's: co-edited with Eli Horowitz and Lisa Wagner), Mythtym (Picturebox), and Sweet Tomb (Madras Press). Dalton's next story collection, Baby Geisha, is forthcoming this winter (Two Dollar Radio). She teaches fiction and critical writing at USC, Art Center College of Design, SVA and Vermont College of Fine Arts.
Popahna Brandes' fiction, translation, film, and music have appeared in The Encyclopedia Project, Pocket Myths, Tarpaulin Sky, and Ein Magazin über Orte.
