Peaches and Bats Noon Saturday

Im reading poems with Joseph Mains and dan raphael this Saturday, July 10 at 12 noon at St. Johns Booksellers, next to the St. Johns Farmers Market in North Portland. Its the launch for Peaches and Bats #6, the Portland-based poetry zine edited by Sam Lohmann, wholl read some work by contributors who cant be there.

Peaches and Bats
is one of those hand-sewn, handheld lit delivery devices that was supposed to wither with the rise of the Internet, but keeps putting out blooms (Try!, Mrs. Maybe, Satellite Telephone, Abraham Lincoln, Poor Claudia, etc.) via stapler, Paypal, and day job copy machine access, plus lots of editorial energy and love. Print: the new samizdat.

I bought a Dan Raphael xexoxial edition (this one, I think) from the Teachers College Bookstore 20 years or so ago. It meant a lot to me at the time.

Hit it out of the park, Rodney! Or better yet, go three for four. (Best of all do both.)

Thanks, JD. Didn't know dan raphael till I moved here, but meet fans of his work outside the city limits seems like all the time.
