In the afternoon and evening of Friday May 5, Restless Books will be sharing a table with our friends Archipelago Books at a block party organized by the CLMP at the 2017 PEN World Voices Festival: PRESS FEST! The event, a literary magazine and small press fair, will take place at NYU's King Juan Carlos Center near Washington Square in Manhattan from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm. From 4:30 pm until 5:30 pm. Icelandic author and Björk-collaborator Oddný Eir will sign her novel Land of Love and Ruins and Polish journalist Filip Springer will sign his nonfiction work History of a Disappearance: The Story of a Forgotten Polish Town.
The PRESS FEST! overlaps with the kickoff of the PEN World Voices Festival Lit Crawl events starting at 6:00 pm, when you can catch Oddny at an "Auto-Fiction" event with Edouard Louis and Bae Suah, or Filip and his translator Sean Gasper Bye at "A Most Exquisite Corpse" event with Francisco Cantú. See you there!
