Some Assembly Required: A Distributed Book Launch

Some Assembly Required: A Distributed Book Launch

On Saturday October 27th, you’ll have the opportunity to hear readings by six different conceptual women writers at three different alternative art venues in Chinatown Los Angeles. Audience members are invited to choose the order in which they experience this “distributed” book launch. Co-sponsored by the CalArts MFA Writing Program and Les Figues Press, Some Assembly Required celebrates our recently published anthology I’ll Drown My Book: Conceptual Writing By Women, which features work by 64 writers from 10 countries.

A different kind of reading, from a different kind of book of a different kind of writing. Some assembly required — but that’s the fun of it, and there is a map!

When: 8-11 pm on Saturday, October 27, 2012

Where: Institute for FiguringAutomata and Human Resources (Chinatown LA)

Who: Teresa Carmody, Jen Hofer, Vanessa Place, Frances Richard, Giovanni Singleton, Christine Wertheim

How: Move from venue to venue in the order you choose to hear all six writers, reading as themselves and others

Why: Because conceptual writing by women asks you to experience time and space in multiple ways, and this reading does too. Accompanied by refreshments.
