Remember your elementary school’s annual book fair where you’d spend your lunch money on Goosebumps? We certainly do!
We’re excited to announce the third annual Small Press Expo, co-presented with APRIL on March 30, from 11 am – 4 pm. There you’ll have the chance to buy books from great presses like Hobart (SF/LD Books), Future Tense, Featherproof, Jaded Ibis, Caktrain, Magic Helicopter, and more.
But it will also be so much more than a book fair! All throughout the day we’ll have readings and musical performances from:
12-1: Housefire Cat Club presents new works
1-1:30: SPLAB Poetry Bout: New Mexicans (Amalio Madueño and Nadine Maestas) vs. Cascadians (Stephen Roxborough and Anastacia Tolbert), hosted by Paul Nelson.
2:30-3:30: Breadline March on an APRIL Afternoon, featuring Portland poet Michael Heald, and all-girl string trio “the Ink & the Echo.” Hosts Greg Bem and Jeremy Springsteed will perform pieces with string accompaniment.
3:30-4: Other People’s Poetry & Prose: We’re bringing back a favorite event from Pilot Books. Bring your favorite small or independent press title and read to us.
Mark your calendars! It’s going to be a great way to end the festival. And because we like you and want you to come, there’s no entry fee and the first ten attendees will get an APRIL tote.
