I’m reading poems with Joseph Mains and dan raphael this Saturday, July 10 at 12 noon at St. Johns Booksellers, next to the St. Johns Farmer’s Market in North Portland. It’s the launch for Peaches and Bats #6, the Portland-based poetry zine edited by Sam Lohmann, who’ll read some work by contributors who can’t be there.
Peaches and Bats is one of those hand-sewn, handheld lit delivery devices that was supposed to wither with the rise of the Internet, but keeps putting out blooms (Try!, Mrs. Maybe, Satellite Telephone, Abraham Lincoln, Poor Claudia, etc.) via stapler, Paypal, and day job copy machine access, plus lots of editorial energy and love. Print: the new samizdat.
