Hot Ticket: A Book Release Party – May 5

Anthony Brenton’s mysterious, solipsistic new book A Book launches this month in an evening of music, art, and the spoken word. A Book is published by Pink Eye Print Company, a local DIY screen-printing collective founded in 2011. The fledgling company is a fascinating alternative to traditional publishing houses from whom mass production makes the world go round. To make A Book, the folks at Pink Eye rigged up a bookbinding jig and used it to bind Brenton’s writing the hard way. The cover is original screenprinted art by Jessica Smith, and you can be sure the contents are worth the effort. The event features readings by Anthony Brenton and Kevin Hehir, plus music by Andrew Waterman and Devon Milley. The release is at The Ship at 9pm. Entry is $5 and copies of A Book are $20.
