Mar 29, 2017, 09:42 PM

Episode date, March 9th, 2017: I speak with Ronna Lebo and Boni Joi -- two of the founders of Black Square Editions. Since 1999, the New York-based imprint has published translations of little-known books from around the world, written by well-known poets and fiction writers, while also handling the work of both emerging and established authors. Black Square is part of the nonprofit, Off The Park Press, which also includes the new imprint, AntiSentiMental Society Press, which is dedicated to publishing work that combines visual art and poetry. Its first published title is Theia Mania, a book of poems by Dallas Athent, illustrated by Maria Pavlovska, and book design by Eve Siegel. The book will have its launch event, featuring live readings by Athent, Anthony Haden-Guest, Chris Campanioni, and Prospero Vega on Sunday April 30th at 3PM at Mana Contemporary in Jersey City.
