CAPITAL LIT

capital lit posterSt. Rose is hosting the first Albany Lit Mag and Small Press Fair this Saturday. From organizer Daniel Nester's web site:

Hundreds of regional and national independent literary publishers will converge to sell their journals for only $2 an issue and books for $4 each. Many publishers will attend in person to meet Albany's eager readers, so don't miss this opportunity to discover literature you are unlikely to find in a single store, and meet the publishers and editors who do the real work of keeping American Literature vibrant and vital.

There will also be readings and discussions throughout the day. The fair runs from noon to 6 pm in St. Joseph's Auditorium on the CSR campus. It's free.

But, wait. There's more. The day will be capped off with an event called "Karaoke + Poetry = Fun" at Valentine's at 7 pm.

Comments

I hope this event happens. Last year I read in the St. Rose Alumni Newsletter that there would be a Small Press Fair, I took my daughter and some of her friends to the college. My daughter and her friends were seniors in high school, interested in Journalism and part of the prestigious New Visions Program at Times Union.
When we arrived at the College there was no event in the room listed.
It was also listed on the the College's electronic calendar illuminating the hall in the main buildings. The college's staff knew nothing about it in any office. The staff in the financial aid office was the most helpful in taking the students to the President's Office to get to the bottom of the calendar listing. Sadly, in the end, none of the event's coordinators could be reached and the kids went home with nothing to show for their field trip.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
