Six-Minute Reading, George Hitchcock Legacy Project, and more...

Hey gang, a quick post to let you know that we're headed to Eugene, OR, today to help celebrate the publication of George Hitchcock's (1914-2010) Six-Minute Poems at Tsunami Books. We are celebrating All-Things-George at this event, which happens to fall on his birthday. We have many Hitchcock projects in the works, including a chapbook publication of his hearing before the Un-American Activities Committee, which is bar none the best piece of impromptu subversive theater ever recorded. Over the next two years we're publishing George's collected poems in a multi-volume set, which will be housed in a slipcase. We are filled with excitement to be preserving this indelible body of work.

Today also kicks off the beginning of our George Hitchcock Legacy Project. We will be raising $10,000 to print, promote, and preserve our myriad Hitchcock projects. Individuals making a tax-deductible donation of $300 or more will have the option to be named as a contributor to the George Hitchcock Legacy Project, which will be acknowledged within the books. Click here to donate.
