Reanimation Library founder Andrew Beccone will present an overview of the library’s history, objectives, and activities. Los Angeles-based writers Colin Dickey and Bruna Mori will read from their contributions to Word Processor, the library’s ongoing exploration of its own holdings.
Dickey will respond to Abyss: The Deep Sea and the Creatures that Live in It, while Mori will tackle a new (and as-of-yet uncataloged) acquisition, Seeing Well Again Without Your Glasses. The evening will culminate in a completely routine—yet often hidden—celebration of technological hoo-ha by publically uploading electronic files to the library’s web host via an FTP client, thus “launching” the new installment of Word Processor. Sparklers will be at hand.
