A DAY IN THE LIFE OF GRANDMA MOSES PRESS
July 2, 2015
In Las Cruces, Grandma Moses Press founder, Tim Staley, chops out chapbooks before the reading.
After all the book’s insides are cut out, the covers are chopped to size.
The final steps are folding, stapling, and numbering each book by hand. This is the press’ newest release, a debut collection of poems by Antoinette Nena Villamil.
A line of poetry is stretched from Las Cruces to Albuquerque. The temperature is 101.
Minutes before the reading begins.
The Beatlick Sisters open with “Can You Breathe?”
Joaquin Fore delivers his Science Fiction Gumshoe poems.
Katrina Guarascio slams into high gear. She will be competing at this year’s National Poetry Slam in Oakland, California.
Jon Huerta, down from Outlaw Mountain, closes the evening with four poems from his Grandma Moses Press release: Posole with Benefits.
