Reading in LA – 12/17 – Insert/Blanc Press Benefit

Insert Blanc Press Benefit & Holiday Party
Saturday December 17 from 6-12pm
Los Angeles, CA 90027
Donation at the door of $10 or more more$
I’d like to invite you to the Insert Blanc Press Benefit & Holiday Party at Weekend Gallery4634 Hollywood Blvd, LA, CA 90027 on Saturday December 17 from 6-12pm.
$10.00 or more more$ Donation at the door (all donations will help cover expenses for Insert Blanc Press future and current projects and operations). Additionally, throughout the month of December Insert Blanc Press will run various tempting discounts on the whole catalog of books, all of which will also be available at the Holiday Party—many authors will be on-hand to sign copies of their books.
Artists & Writers performing at the Insert Press Benefit & Holiday Party include: Harold Abramowitz, Brian Ang, Allison Carter, Brian Joseph Davis, Robin Dicker, Kate Durbin, K. Lorraine Graham, Daniel Hockenson, Jen Hofer, Garrick Hogg, js makkos, Joseph Mosconi, Adam Overton, Christopher Russell, Ara Shirinyan, Brian Kim Stefans, Mark Wallace, and our special guests Dodie Bellamy, David Buuck & Kevin Killian.
Insert Blanc Press has published and promoted the work of over 60 artists and writers since it’s humble beginnings in 2005. The PARROT series alone will publish the work of 23 writers over the course of its run and features the design work of the brilliant printer Margaret Lomeli. Blanc Press has recently published the enigmatic project(!x==[33]) Book 1 Volume 1 by .UNFO and has garnered attention by publishing the three volume series Tragodíaby Vanessa Place.
Over the course of December I hope to raise $5,000 for Insert Blanc Press in sales and donations to fund printing and press operations in 2012. I hope to raise $2000 of the goal at the party on Saturday December 17. $2000 will go principally to funding the printing of the remainder of the PARROT series, which, if that goal is met, I hope to have out by summer 2012. An additional $1500 will go to moving all of Blanc Press’ publications to a new printer and distributor which will give us international distribution and access to sites like Amazon and actually lower the price of the books. Any additional money raised to meet our total goal of $5,000 will go towards publishing new projects in 2012, including Bruna Mori’s Poetry for Corporations, Kate Durbin’s E! Entertainment Diamond Edition, Joseph Mosconi’s GRRR ARRRGH as well as a forthcoming project by Christopher Russell and many other projects I just can’t tell you about quite yet.
Whether or not you can make it to the party, donations can be made to Insert Blanc Press anytime.
Past and current Insert Blanc Press artists include: Harold Abramowitz, Amanda Ackerman, Will Alexander, Brian Ang, Stan Apps, Janine Armin, Gary Barwin, Guy Bennett, Gregory Betts, Amaranth Borsuk, Franklin Bruno, Amina Cain, Allison Carter, Teresa Carmody, Marcus Civin, Ginny Cook, Dorit Cypis, Brian Joseph Davis, Katie Degentesh, Michelle Detorie, Robin Dicker, Sandy Ding, Kate Durbin, Bradney Evans, Drew Gardner, Nada Gordon, K.
