Celebrate twenty years of the Bay Area letterpress zine Ker-bloom! with this free reading featuring Ker-bloom!'s writer/printer Artnoose as well as special guests Sarah Shourd and Ocean Capewell.

Artnoose has been writing and letterpress printing the personal zine Ker-bloom! every other month since 1996, covering such topics as love, heartbreak, radical politics, traveling, books, and single parenting. She has done zine reading tours around North America and enjoys performance about as much as printing. She lives in a multigenerational, long-standing collective house in Berkeley.

Sarah Shourd is an author, prisoner rights advocate, and Contributing Editor at Solitary Watch. She co-authored the memoir A Sliver of Light: Three Americans Imprisoned in Iran, and her play, Opening the Box, will premiere in San Francisco in July. She is a regular contributor to Daily Beast and writes a blog for The Huffington Post. Sarah lives in Oakland.

Ocean Capewell has also been writing zines since 1996 and is the author of the novel The Most Beautiful Rot. She was born in Queens and raised on Long Island. She does not have a New York accent, but she can impersonate one well. Pittsburgh is her adopted hometown, but she currently lives in Oakland, CA, where she reads tarot and does solidarity work for and with prisoners.
