Grant Maierhofer reading

Please join us for a reading by Grant Maierhofer, the author of Postures, the most recent title in our Fellow Travelers series . 

Kevin Killian on Postures by Grant Maierhofer,

"X, a young Midwestern novelist of uncertain talent, attends a Chicago-based writing program and relapses, after a few years of relative, Celexa-fueled relief from depression and self-harm. Though his world grows dark and cold, and he moves away from society with the unerring sincerity of the pilgrim, we never lose faith in X, due to Maierhofer's impressive storytelling. He's good both at the level of detail (and sentence), and in the larger picture (and for what might still be called "plot," even in a novel so postmodern and affectless). Postures establishes itself early on as a guide to young America, but if I'd read the French translation, I would be thinking of Baudelaire, his poetry and fury and contempt and his sadness and his call for a transfixing fire."

Grant Maierhofer is the author of Marcel, Postures, and The Persistence of Crows. His work has appeared in Gestures, Berfrois and elsewhere. Postures is his second novel, and the eighth in Publication Studio's Fellow Travelers series.

Le Bacchanal III

Please join us at Publication Studio for the third Le Bacchanal!

October 25th, 7:30pm – Food by Neal Barnard —$35 or RSVP at ps@publicationstudio.biz

It's good to bite into a persimmon and then leave the rest, staining the table underneath. Spill bagna càuda on your clothes, oops. Dye the tips of your hair with Campari. Eat pasta with your hands and wipe them on the tablecloth. Kiss the person across the table and knock over a bottle of wine. There are no mistakes with food when you're eating with other people. We carry each other through the meal. "The notion that the world is common to us all is vital," says Lyn Hejinian, and that is so hot. 

Part of Le Bacchanal is to read something during the meal. It can be something you wrote, something you've read, just about anything. Please bring something to read!

London launch of Two August In A Row In A Row by Shelley Marlow and talk by Brooke Palmieri

Please join Publication Studio London after hours at LCBA for the London launch of Shelley Marlow's new novel; Two Augusts In A Row In A Row. A talk by Brooke Palmieri on censorship and subversive printing will accompany a group reading of Two Augusts In a Row In A Row by Marlow and special guests.

Freshly made books and drinks will be served!

A recent addition to Publication Studio's The Fellow Traveler's Series; Two Augusts In A Row In A Row is a love letter between generations of queer people. Set in New York City in 2001, we follow Phillip—a gender subversive drag king in search of grace and magic—through rich, sad, humorous language that is singularly Shelley Marlow's.  

"As a genderqueer reader who has never before experienced this kind of raw validation in fiction, I daresay it’s groundbreaking...It’s casual magic. It’s truth.” - Spencer Shannon, WBUR 

“A new entry in Publication Studio's Fellow Travelers Series is always cause for delight. The series, devoted to works of sexual and political adventure that interdict the demands of the market, is perfect for Shelley Marlow and her beautiful, picaresque, Two Augusts in a Row in a Row.” - Kevin Killian

Shelley Marlow is an artist and writer living in NYC. Marlow's novel Two Augusts In a Row In a Row is published as part of the Fellow Traveler Series, Publication Studio, (2015). Marlow is prose editor for Ping Pong Magazine, an annual print publication from the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur. Marlow's writing and visual art is found in several publications including LTTR(Lesbians To The Rescue), alLuPiNiT, Drunken Boat, saint-lucy.com, and The Literary Review. Marlow's essay, Notes in Kyzyl, published in the St. Petersburg Review, describes traveling to Siberia to meet shamans. Marlow has most recently exhibited paintings at Artmarket Provincetown and Valentine Gallery, NY. Marlow wrote the lyrics to the musical, UnKnot Turandot, performed at La Mama Theater, NY and presented an interactive project, International Witch Stories in the Italian Pavilion for the 48th Venice Biennial.

Brooke Palmieri studied English and History for her undergraduate degree at the University of Pennsylvania, but it was working at the Department of Rare Books and Manuscripts during that time that really shaped her interest in the history of the book. After completing her Masters in Early Modern English Literature at Oxford in 2010, she entered the antiquarian book trade with a focus on cataloguing and selling early printed books at Sokol Books Ltd. Since 2013, she has been working on her PhD with CELL (Centre for Editing Lives and Letters), London. Her research and teaching is dedicated to unearthing the radical potential of print and manuscript cultures.
