SPD Books at the BAM

Starting January 15th, SPD and some key Bay Area SPD publishers are collaborating with the Berekely Art Museum on their new project, The Reading Room.  The Reading Room will feature a Take A Book / Leave A Book library which will be initially seeded by Kelsey Street, Atelos and Tuumba overstock.  So bring a book from your collection and pick up one of the terrific titles that will be on hand!  You can also listen to recordings of selected poets published by these presses, and view silk-screen prints and original works on paper created by George Schneeman in collaboration with poets Ron Padgett, Bill Berkson, and Lewis MacAdams.  A schedule of related readings and events will be announced soon.  If you are in Berkeley, don't miss it!!!
