Launch Party for Travis Smith's chapbook in cards, Zodiac B
Join us to celebrate the release Zodiac B, a chapbook-in-cards by longtime Flyleaf bookseller Travis Smith! He'll do a reading and a little slideshow talk about his work, and we'll have some snacks and drinks on hand for you to munch on, plus chapbooks and limited-edition posters for sale.
About Zodiac B:
In 1922, a council of astronomers ratified the eighty-eight constellations we know today, leaving many others to fall into obscurity. Now, with prose poems dedicated to Argo the Ship, Felis the Cat, Solarium the Sundial, and a dozen more of those lost figures, Travis Smith presents a zodiac of the obsolete, the forgotten, and the lost. Printed on cards in the US by the United States Playing Card Company.
