Summer BF Press
Steve updated the Summer BF Press blog with photos from the recent book release party for Dodie Bellamy's "Whistle While You Dixie". It looks very handsome, I think. That was such a fun night. Dodie brought great snacks and fizzy water. All of these great friends showed up. Bruce Boone who was wearing this incredible multi-colored knit sweater fell asleep on my bed, or at least closed his eyes for a while, and my cat, Miette, curled up next to him. Neil LeDoux, the artist who drew the cover image for "Whistle" hung drawings in my hallway, and there are a few nice shots of that. Dodie read from the second half of the chapbook, about hitchhiking from Georgia to Indiana, which I hadn't heard her read before. Lucky me, lucky everyone. Dodie gave another great reading last night at the Condensary Reading Series in Oakland. Everyone was in such a good mood. Anyway, let's all plan for more of these kinds of occasions to come.
