My friends and I are starting a literary and arts collective in the Bywater. Press Street is named after the street that borders the west side of the Bywater, running along the train tracks where the old cotton presses were housed. We plan to publish small specialized books that merge design and prose, and to host a few art shows, and, more important, to offer literacy programs for kids and adults.
But first we are simply hosting a reading--tonight (Thursday November 10 at 7pm) with poet Carolyn Hembree and fiction writer Patty Friedmann. If you are in town, come to Beth's Books, on Port Street at Chartres, adjacant to the Sound Cafe.
