Book Arts for Poets, an Exhibition and Reading
Saturday, October 23, 7 to 9 p.m., doors open at 6:30

KBAC Gallery, 103A Park Trades, 326 W. Kalamazoo Avenue

During the summer of 2010 six local poets participated in a six-week workshop in which they created limited-edition handmade books at the Kalamazoo Book Arts Center. These poets include Nina Feirer, Shanda Hansma Blue, Conrad Hilberry, Elizabeth Kerlikowske, Susan Ramsey, and Elaine Seaman. The poets made handmade paper covers for the books, created relief print illustrations, and sewed the books together by hand.

For this event the poet’s books will be displayed in the gallery, and they will read from their work. Please join us for this special exhibition and reading.
