It was an honor to release Forest Avenue Press’ fourth title, The Night, and the Rain, and the River, at Powell’s City of Books in front of an overflow crowd of 120 attendees on May 6. We’re so grateful to Powell’s for booking us into the legendary Pearl Room reading space, and for putting out all those chairs!

Liz Prato conducted the evening with exquisite and personal tributes to each of the four writers who read their stories: Scott Sparling, Sage Cohen, Margaret Malone, and Joanna Rose. We provided cupcakes–delicious mini-marvels!–from Cupcake Jones, and we raffled off three of our hardcover limited edition version of The Night, and the Rain, and the River.

Thanks so much to everyone who attended, and to all of the writers, artists, and editorial support for this project, including all 22 contributors, graphic designer Gigi Little, letterpress artist Clare Carpenter of Tiger Food Press, copy editor Annie Denning Hille, and publicity assistant Diane Prokop.
