ACTION BOOKS LAUNCH PARTY: Arielle Greenberg, Aase Berg & Lara Glenum - Saturday, Oct. 22, 7PM - Little Kings Club

You are warmly invited to the Action Books launch party and poetry reading at 7:00PM on Saturday, October 22 at Little Kings Club (corner of Hull and Hancock). We will be celebrating the publication of Action Books’ inaugural three titles: The Hounds of No, by Athens’ own Lara Glenum, Arielle Greenberg’s My Kafka Century, and Remainland, the selected poems of Swedish poet Aase Berg. All three poets will read from their books, and there will be general celebratory mayhem.
