The Los Angeles–based independent press Siglio revealed today that it will move its operations to the Hudson River Valley in New York later this summer. To celebrate, on July 30 it will be throwing a marathon reading of John Cage’s Diary: How to Improve the World (You Will Only Make Matters Worse) at the Basilica Hudson as part of the first annual Read & Feed Festival.
The event—which will also be broadcast live on local Hudson River Valley radio station WGXC 90.7—will feature 25 poets, writers, musicians, composers, artists, and, according to a press release, “even a master puppeteer.” True to its name, the Read & Feed Festival at large will showcase a mix of local artisanal food makers and small publishers. The authors Lydia Davis and Lynne Tillman will be leading a wine tasting. Target demographic: reached.
Founded in 2008, Siglio has released a mix of books from both well known and obscure writers spanning art and literature communities.
