Printed Matter Vancouver thanks Cover to Cover Books for the Holiday Book Fair

Authors, publishers and readers gather at Cover to Cover Dec. 10, 2011

Printed Matter Vancouver would like to thank Cover to Cover Books owner Mel Sanders and all the participants in the first annual Author Fair for a fun afternoon of literature, snacks, and community. We really enjoyed meeting the other authors and publishers as well as all of the wonderful folks who stopped by our table. We were surprised to learn that some of the attendees had even come from out of state to see us.

Here are some pictures from the fair, courtesy of Lilith Saintcrow. To read Lilith’s account of the event, and see more photos, go to:

Toni Partington reads her poem, “It Matters To Notice These Things,”

from the Ghost Town Poetry anthology,

published this year by Printed Matter Vancouver

Christopher Luna reads his poem, “magic taken seriously,”

from the Ghost Town Poetry anthology

Here’s hoping that this will become an annual event. There is no one I know who does more than Mel Sanders to foster literary community in Vancouver. Please support her by doing your holiday book shopping with her.

If you don’t yet have a copy of the Ghost Town Poetry anthology, it is available at Cover to Cover Books ( for ten dollars. Give the gift of poetry this holiday season.

On January 12 at 6pm Printed Matter Vancouver will celebrate five years of open mic poetry at Cover to Cover Books¬† with a potluck, open mic poetry, and musical performances from Jennifer Pratt -Walter, Bret Jorgensen, and Lincoln’s Beard.¬† We hope you will join us for what is certain to be a fun evening.
