Rental: Book Launch for Exercises to Free the Tongue

Four Tenenbaums PostcardJoin us for the book launch of Exercises to Free the Tongue – poems and text by award-winning poet Molly Tenenbaum, 42-page artist’s book by Ellen Ziegler. Illuminated with historic images and ephemera from Molly’s grandparents, ventriloquists on the vaudeville circuit in the early 1900s, this book of poems plays with ventriloquial metaphors of voice and breath. A long time in the works, this is a book to celebrate. Produced by Paper Hammer, Seattle and Tieton. Supported by grants from Artist Trust and 4Culture.

Poetry reading, ventriloquial sing-alongs, videos of great vents past and present. Book signing! Drinking! Release your inner ventriloquist, or at least your inner vaudevillian. (Don’t move your lips.)
