The Last Vispo Anthology Book Launch Party
Please join us on Wednesday, February 6, at 7 pm, for the launch celebration of The Last Vispo Anthology (Fantagraphics 2012), co-edited by Moscow's own Crag Hill. There will be a no-host bar and copies of the anthology will be available for sale and signing. WSU graduate students Owen Williams and Sarah Thaller will join Crag Hill in a reading performance of the anthology's essays, followed by a Q & A.
Hill's most recent book is 7 x 7 (Otoliths, 2010). He has had poems--visual and textual--published in dozens of journals in the U.S. and around the world. A 1990 graduate of San Francisco State, Hill now teaches English Education at Washington State University.
From the Poetry Foundation: A recent review of The Last Vispo Anthology: Visual Poetry 1998-2008 in Eoagh by poet and filmmaker Alison Watkins prompted us to finally spend some quality time over the holidays reading/looking at this gorgeous and timely compilation. Edited by Nico Vassilakis andCrag Hill and published by Fantagraphic Books in Seattle, the anthology captures (as Watkins puts it) “the explosion of visual poetry that surfaced as the result of computerization and digitization intersecting the humanities in the decade between 1998-2008.”
