Octopus Books turns 10! Birthday Party Fundraiser

admin—April 14, 2016


Octopus Books is turning 10! And all it wants for its 10th birthday is to become a non-profit press in order to continue publishing 3-4 books of poems each year. So, the party will serve as a fundraiser to help launch us into non-profitness. We’ll have signed books from our catalog for sale, special prizes, a raffle, and a few good opportunities to put a donation in the coffer.

We’ll celebrate with sets from some of our musical acts:

Haley Heynderickx
My Body
Typhoon w/Zachary Schomburg.

And 12 of our favorite local poets will read their own favorite poem from our Octopus Books catalog between sets:

Tyler Brewington
Jae Choi
James Gendron
Sara Guest
Michael Harper
Brandi Katherine Herrera
Shayla Lawson
Anis Mojgani
Patricia No
Kelly Schirmann
Ashley Toliver
Stacey Tran
