Alternative Matter: The Word II - Reading with Steven Hendricks on the Art of the Printed Form



Come to Orca Books for an evening in which local Evergreen Professor and Artist, Steven Hendricks, will be reading from his novel, Little is Left to Tell, as well as from new work. This reading will be followed by a week-long exhibition of Book Arts curated by Steven at Orca Books.

Collaboratively conceived and curated by Orca Books Co-op, Desuetude Art Gallery and The 3rd Thing Press, these weekly events are an exercise in creating a culture of necessary alternatives.
