It's Ready!

Listed on the side is the brand new season of the Imaginary Press Reading Series, folks!

As we celebrate the fine poets, we also lament the loss of a wonderful venue: Opposable Thumbs Used Books and Vinyl has closed its doors. I send an eternal Thank You to Ed Hilbrich for nurturing our tender first year.

I'll reveal the address of a new venue along with bios and photos of our dashing first readers of the season, in the coming weeks. Check back!
