Come join Kelsey Street Press and Les Figues Press at The Last Bookstore in Downtown LA featuring a book launch and readings by Sabrina Dalla Valle and Christine Wertheim.

Sabrina Dalla Valle’s book 7 Days and Nights in the Desert (Tracing the Origin) was selected by Mei-mei Berssenbrugge as the winner of the 2013 Kelsey Street Press Firsts! Contest.

Christine Wertheim’s newest book, mUtter-bAbel, is coming out in early 2014 from Counterpath. If we are lucky, there will be copies at the event!
