Wayzgoose Coming October 20th

Well, it has been a hectic summer, and I have been a negligent blogger. As we rush to prepare books for the fall season, let me ease my way back into the spirit of things by posting the poster for our upcoming Wayzgoose and open house, to be held on October 20th.

Our special guests this year are master papermaker David Carruthers of the Papeterie Saint-Armand in Montreal and letterpress printer and printmaker David Brewer of Rabbittown Press, Fredericton. There will also be readings by authors Carmine Starnino and Heather Jessup.

The schedule of events will be roughly thus: You can attend a Literary Salon with Carmine and Heather at 10:00 Saturday morning, an informal chance to talk to authors about the craft of writing. Meanwhile, we’ll be setting up in the printshop from 10:00 until noon, and keener artists, bibliophiles, typenuts and printers are invited to drop in, hang out and talk shop while we prepare for the afternoon open house. We also usually have an offcut paper sale in the morning. The Open House itself will officially run from 2:00 until 4:30, with lots of papermaking, printing and typecasting demos. In the evening, the authors will be reading at 7:00 and the Lochhead Memorial Book-Arts Lecture will be shared by short presentations by papermaker David Carruthers and myself. Watch for locations and other details as we get closer to the event.
