InDigest editor Dustin Nelson is doing a project in Minneapolis at the Walker Art Center’s Open Field titled APPLAUSE. It’s two hours of unbroken applause. Come by on June 26 to watch the applause, join in, or just pass by. The event will last from 5:30-7:30pm and will be a world record if the group keeps going the entire time.
Happy to announce I’ll be reading with some other Women Poets Wearing Sweatpants at Popsickle on Saturday, 6/28. The readings start at 12:30; I’ll be on around 7. If you’re in NY, you won’t want to miss this day of poetry!
I will be in Milwaukee this Sunday, reading some poems at Microlights with Ashleigh Lambert and Adam Fell. It’s going to be a good time. If you’re in Milwaukee or have poetry-loving friends in Milwaukee, as previously noted, this will be a good time.
Bob Schofield, author of The Inevitable June, will be coming to New York on June 1 to sketch the book live at The Gallery at LPR.
The Inevitable June (The Newer York, 2014) is a beautiful bout of lightheadedness. It’s a sad, surreal adventure, that is both intimate and epic. Tracking the day by day slog of its narrator, The Inevitable June creates a non-linear narrative of a month in the life of its strange, grayscale protagonist. The highest compliment I can give this book is that both the narrative and the illustrations don’t require each other. Inside of each is contained an entire strange story. This could be a successful picture book or surreal series of flash narratives. Together, they transcend genre into something eerie, wonderful, and funny. It’s an illustrated bit of high weirdness. A poetic comic in surreality. A sketchbook diary of a month on acid.
To see this illustrated and read live will be a really unique experience. Check it out on June 1 if you’re in NYC.
The ebook of The Inevitable June is available now and the print edition will be available on June 1 (and probably at the reading that day as well). Watch the trailer for the book below.
