We're so excited to have been asked to participate in Reading Frenzy's first ever Print Fancy recent release party! We'll be reading an excerpt from the new issue.
THURSDAY, APRIL 12th, 6:30PM
Recent Release Party & Self-Publisher Social
Join us for the first ever Print Fancy! We believe every new print publication deserves a party, so we're hosting a bi-monthly round-up for the recently self-published! This month we're featuring A Field Guide to the Aliens of Stark Trek The Next Generation #3 by Zach, Dear Shane, I tried to kill myself by Jazz McGinnis, Whoosh! #3 by Katherina Audley,Bumpstart #6/7 by Karen Giezyng, When Language Runs Dry co-edited by Meredith Butner, and The 415th Time by Michael Heald.
Anyone with a recently self-published title is welcome to come and consign their publication before 7:30pm. All entries will be featured in a special display for the evening and listed in a written round-up on our blog. There will time to mix and mingle and a rapid fire round of readings from a handful of self-publishers.
We'll provide light refreshments, as well as information on local publishing resources.
when language runs dry #2: A collection of essays and comics by people living with chronic pain and illness: Crohn’s, back trouble, depression, panic disorder. Emphasis on coping strategies—helpful to know even if you’re not currently in pain. (There’s an essay on how to react helpfully and supportively to people with chronic disorders.) Contains a list of books and other resources. –MC when language runs dry #3: This is a comp zine for people with chronic pain and their allies. I loved this; it is easy to read, has great pictures/illustrations, and the stories from folks living with pain are eye-opening. Stories range from an account of a person who was hit by a car while riding her bike to work and now lives with a brain injury; an entry that focuses on having a disability that isn’t visible and how others react to the disability; thoughts on saying no to outings with friends due to fear of aggravating existing pain, etc. This is packed with great information and includes a reading list (books, blogs, media). Highly recommended. –Stephanie K.
