Week of readings and panels
This busy week:
Tues May 13, 12:30pm-1:30pm The Paper Hound, 344 W Pender
I’m hosting our second Lettering Reading in the Postal Code Reading Series. We’ll be at The Paper Hound on 344 W Pender in Vancouver with Kevin Spenst. Kevin wrote a fantastic letter to us about an imagined correspondence between a bank robber and the teller. We’ll be reading our responses to his letter. Also, guests are invited to write messages on fake dollar bills and tuck them cracks in the bookshop’s back wall.
Thurs May 15, 7pm, Pulp Fiction Books, 2422 Main Street (at 8th)
