book launch, etc.

August 13, 2019

David Ossman, perhaps best known for his work with the Firesign Theatre, writes poems. Egress Studio Press publishes exceptionally beautiful hand-stitched books.

This Saturday, August 17, 2019, Egress Studio will host a book launch party for Ossman’s new Egress-published collection, The Old Man’s Poems. In addition to a pre-reading potluck supper, the event will include a performance by Seattle’s Band of Poets, a music and poetry group featuring John Burgess, Anna Jenkins, Jed Myers, Ted McMahon, and Rosanne Olson. (Parking is limited and carpooling is encouraged.)

For more information, here’s a post by Anita K. Boyle, and here’s the event on Facebook.

Today in Kirkland!

July 21, 2018

There’s still time to get on over to BookTree in Kirkland, Washington, for today’s highly recommended workshop, reading, open mic, and music featuring poet/musician/psychiatrist Jed Myers.

The free workshop, “Putting Your Heart on the Line,” 4:30 to 6:00pm, will integrate some talk, some writing, and possibly some reading of what participants write. Then from 6:15 to 8:18pm the poetry reading and open mic will feature Jed Myers and the Band of Poets — Ted McMahon (percussion), Rosanne Olson (harmonica, guitar), Anna Jenkins (harp), John Burgess (various effects), and Jed Myers (guitar).

You’ll have a chance to see (and purchase?) a copy of the gorgeous, brand new book by Myers, Between Dreams and Flesh, published and handmade by Egress Studio Press.

Go!
