The 2003 DIY Book Festival reports that its annual gala awards ceremony honoring independent authors and publishers will benefit the Beyond Baroque Literary Center of Venice, California. (DIY = Do It Yourself, of course.)
The 35-year old landmark bookstore/performance space/publisher will be celebrated on Thursday, October 2nd at the Derby Nightclub in Hollywood with a special night of spoken word performances, music, exhibits, panels and literary readings by some of Beyond Baroque’s distinguished alumni, all capped by the 2003 DIY Book Festival Awards Ceremony.
Tickets for the event are $15 and available by calling the DIY Book Festival at 323-665-8080 or may be purchased online at http://www.diybookfestival.com. Entrants to the DIY Book Festival contest are admitted free to the awards program.
The Beyond Baroque Literary Center is a performance and publishing forum in the cultural heart of Southern California.
Formed in 1968 by a group of writers with the publication of an avant-garde poetry magazine, the center has grown into a hub for readings, performances, special events, and ongoing educational classes, including its long-running Wednesday Night Poetry Workshop. Among its most important missions is Beyond Books, dedicated to important emerging and overlooked work that is unavailable elsewhere or out of print.
Headlining the DIY Book Festival benefit will be performances by X’s John Doe; Pleasant Gehman, author of The Underground Guide To L.A.; Larry Jaffe, International Readings Coordinator for the United Nations Dialogue Among Civilizations Through Poetry program; and Shawna Kenney, author of I Was A Teenage Dominatrix. Other performers will be announced in the coming weeks.
Entries for the 2003 DIY Book Festival competition will be accepted through September 25 at http://www.diybookfestival.com. The DIY Book Festival will consider self-published or independent publisher non-fiction, fiction, children’s books, how-to, photography/art, comics, ‘zines, fan fiction and ebooks released after January 1, 2001.
