Join us at 7pm at our bookstore to help celebrate the launch of GUILLOTINE, an ongoing series of handbound letterpress-printed chapbooks focusing on revolutionary nonfiction, with authors Vanessa Veselka (Zazen) and Karolina Waclawiak (How To Get Into The Twin Palms )alongside GUILLOTINE publisher Sarah McCarry (All Our Pretty Songs).
The first book in the series is Violence, an expansion of Vanessa Veselka and Lidia Yuknavitch’s conversation on women, writing, and violence, which originally appeared online at the Believer blog. Smart, funny, fearless, and life-changing, this dialogue covers hope, Freud, castration, knitting, and a wide variety of bodily functions.
