Our first major even of the new year is going to be a good one. A Wave Blue World co-founder, Wendy Chin-Tanner is having a book launch party for her poetry collection, TURN. The book isn’t actually being published by AWBW (we’ll stick to comics/graphic novels). Instead, it’ll be published by the very reputable Sibling Rivalry Press, who’ve put out some terrific works of both poetry and prose over the past few years.
We will however be hosting the release party at the Independent Publishing Resource Center (IPRC) in Portland, OR. It’ll be on March 14, 2012 starting at 7PM. Wendy will be reading a selection of poems from her book and there will be additional reading by other authors, including me (Tyler). I’ll actually be reading and presenting the artwork for a short story from a graphic collection that will be published later this year from AWBW.
And if that already wasn’t enough, we’re going to have food catered by Jennifer Bryman who has a cookbook coming out this year, wine from the local vineyard, Chateau Bogrumpus & music from the fantastic ragtime/swing band, Jacob Miller & the Bridge City Crooners.
Please join us, it’s going to be a blast!
