Holiday Open House at Copper Canyon Press and Corvidae Press

Copper canyon press open house
Copper Canyon Press is hosting a Holiday Open House on Friday, December 12, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. During the Open House, all books, signed books, limited editions, letterpress broadsides, and CDs will be sold at special holiday prices; poetry buttons will be free and treats will be provided.

Award-winning poet Emily Warn will read from her new book, Shadow Architect, at 5:30. Chinese translator Red Pine will likely make an appearance (not to read, but to eat, drink, and talk shop).

Copper Canyon is a non-profit publisher dedicated to poetry. Located in Port Townsend, Washington, since 1975, the press has received national awards and attention for its work, including the Pulitzer Prize, two National Book Awards, and features in The New York Times, NPR’s Fresh Air, and PBS’s Lehrer NewsHour.

Copper Canyon Press is easy to find:  Enter Fort Worden at Cherry Street and continue straight through the intersection, past Building 204, to the end of the road. Copper Canyon is Building 313, located right across from the gymnasium. Look for the holiday lights.

Across the street from Copper Canyon is Corvidae Press. They will also be hosting a Holiday Open House and print sale at the same time. Members of the printmaking collective will be offering their artwork for sale, and visitors can learn about the art of printmaking.
