Please join us at 6pm on Saturday, August 24 at Printed Matter St Marks for the launch and reading of Souvenir by Milah Libin, published by Quick Books. Souvenir follows the native New Yorker on her longest stint away from the city yet as she reflects on her sexuality and womanhood in a new context. The publication will be available to event attendees for free, as a single color 11x17 inch risograph, double-sided and folded.
Quick Books is an independent publishing project that brings light to short pieces of writing. Works are created quarterly by different authors and printed quickly with minimal to no publishing cost. Milah Libin’s Souvenir is Quick Book # 3. Learn more
