Open Friday\, Saturday and Sunday noon – 5 pm

\n

Please join us for the opening of the Highland Park Branch of the Reanima tion Library on Sunday\, April 21 from 7–9 pm!

\n

The Highland Par k Branch is a temporary "spore" of the Brooklyn-based Reanimation Library. It is a collection of books that have fallen out of mainstream circulation. Outdated and discarded\, they have been culled from local thrift stores\, stoop sales\, and throw-away piles\, and are given new life as resource mat erial for artists\, writers\, and other cultural archeologists.

\ n

The open ing event will feature new work informed by books from the Highland Park Br anch. Participating artists and performers include: Tristan Duke\, Ken Ehrl ich\, Cayetano Ferrer\, Corey Fogel\, Helki Frantzen\, Katie Herzog\, Khali l Huffman\, Cassandra C. Jones\, Rob Ray\, Sarah Simons\, and Julie Tolenti no.

\n

Dickey will respond to Abyss: The Deep Sea and the Creatures that Live in It\, while M ori will tackle a new (and as-of-yet uncataloged) acquisition\, Seeing Well Again Without Your Glasses. The evening will culminate in a compl etely routine—yet often hidden—celebration of technological hoo-ha by publi cally uploading electronic files to the library's web host via an FTP clien t\, thus "launching" the new installment of Word Processor. Sparkl ers will be at hand.

Your New Image Through Color &\; Line: Writing &am p\; Publication Workshop with Les Figues Press

\n

Les Figues Press will create and publish a reanimated version of Your New Image Through Color &\; Line. This 1981 book written by Gerrie Pinckney and Marg e Swenson\, directors of the Fashion Academy in Southern California\, recog nized that "today's woman is often juggling a career\, family life\, and in volvement in home and community\," and that "if you look like a winner\, be coming a winner is easier."

Using a tool-box of pre-selected writing constraints\, the Les Figues team of writers and producers will re-imagine this text for today's busy i mage-maker. What is the difference\, if any\, between an image made on the page\, though a book\, or with a body? Together\, we will explore the socia l construction of image-making as performance and creative act. The team wi ll have two days to animate the text. The project will culminate with the p ublication and performance of the text.

\n

The Les Figues Press team is com prised of individuals who play and have played key roles in the production of Les Figues books—as authors\, designers\, editors\, curators\, fundraise rs\, interns\, and more—showcasing the kind of group effort it takes to mak e books that prioritize language and aesthetics over commercial appeal. All planning and workshop sessions will be held during open library hours\, fo r the public's viewing pleasure.
