Stillhouse Press launches with new DC cultural series, "The Stillhouse Sessions"

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! I wanted to draw your attention to a great cultural series that has just been launched for D.C. area book lovers! The Stillhouse Sessions series is meant to bring together local book lovers from around the region who want to celebrate the independent spirit of the written word. From Stillhouse's website: "Stillhouse Press ( is dedicated to craft publishing, seeking out writers whose work affirms the enduring power of the written word to inform and delight. With the student-directed support of George Mason’s MFA program, Stillhouse Press was founded by Relegation Books Publisher Dallas Hudgens, as a way to give graduate students an opportunity to gain experience in small press publishing through hands-on application."

There are two upcoming events. Here are the descriptions:
  • The inaugural edition of the Stillhouse Sessions will be held Tuesday, Aug. 26 at 7:00pm at Politics & Prose Bookstore and will feature readings from D.C. native, Maxwell Neely-Cohen (Echo of the Boom) and Ronna Wineberg  (On Bittersweet Place, forthcoming from Northern Virginia-based Relegation Books this Sept.), with musical entertainment from Melodime and drinks courtesy of a local craft distillery.
  • The second edition of the Stillhouse Sessions, “The Salon,” will be held in conjunction with Northern Virginia’s Fall for the Book festival on Saturday, Sept. 13, at George Mason University’s Center for the Arts and will feature a donation-based reception with craft cocktails and light refreshments, followed by a conversation on craft publishing, moderated by independent publicist and Potomac native, Lauren Cerand, and featuring authors Roxane Gay (An Untamed State, Bad Feminist), Ronna Wineberg, and Mary Kay Zuravleff (reading from Wendi Kaufman’s Helen On 86th Street and Other Stories, for which she penned the introduction).

As of 6/6/2011, this book is now an awards free zone. While I appreciate the awards, I would rather stick to reviewing more great books for you than trying to fill the requirements.
