Last night we held a "soft" opening for the Poetic Research Bureau, a new bookstore/reading-space/lending-library/archive in Los Angeles dedicated to small press poetry chapbooks, books, journals and ephemera.
That's me at the desk. Harold Abramowitz took more pictures and posted them on Flickr.
Ara Shirinyan read from his new book Your Country Is Great (Futurepoem, 2008) and Dan Machlin & Jen Hofer read from a collaboration.
The Poetic Research Bureau is directed by Andrew Maxwell, Joseph Mosconi & Ara Shirinyan. It is the home of Make Now Press, Area Sneaks and the Germ. More information about our new space will be available very soon!
