About the Event.
Archway Editions is the new literary imprint of powerHouse Books, the world-famous art book publisher currently distributed by Penguin Random House.
Archway’s mission statement is “to publish the finest authors, at all stages of their careers, who write material which is at odds with the prevailing status quo, both legendary and emerging. This series is designed to be a literary compliment to the trailblazing artbooks of powerHouse Books proper, pocket-sized texts that are guaranteed to alter the way you see the world.”
The first publications scheduled for 2020 are Ishmael Reed’s play The Haunting of Lin-Manuel Miranda, Paul Schrader’s First Reformed screenplay, Gabe Kruis’ Acid Virga, Last Poems by John Farris, and an anthology of work from the Unpublishable zine and reading series (which includes writing by Arash Azizi, Steve Anwyll, Mary Boo Anderson, Chris Gonzalez, Erin Taylor, Jameson Fitzpatrick, and many more). The imprint is genre-blind with a goal to publish unconventional books for the widest possible audience.
Archways is the accompanying reading series, which aims to bring that into practice. Each event will be accompanied by a zine of texts read at the event, which will be compiled into annual anthologies of the same name. They will showcase authors published through Archway Editions and elsewhere.
Information about the previous Archways event can be found here.
Refreshments will be served.
