A sincere and enthusiastic thank you to everyone who came out on Friday night, despite bitter cold and hazardous ice, to celebrate the launch of Augury Books’ 2014 poetry collection, BEAST, by Frances Justine Post, and debut fiction book, THE FAMILY CANNON, by Halina Duraj.
A special thank you to Berl’s Poetry Shop for an ideal venue, friends and family who traveled far, photographer Dave Bledsoe, and guest readers Timothy Donnelly and Ely Shipley, who added their considerable talents to a wonderful evening.
Augury Books Parties with Phoenix Park
September 26, 2013
Last Thursday night, Augury board and friends kicked back over a few pints with the good people of Phoenix Park in New York.
Drink specials, a book sale (thank you all!) and hours of good conversation later, we were already speculating about turning this into a fine, lasting tradition.
Thanks to everyone (esp. David Joel Friedman, Viv for her Shriners fez and Phrenology bust, and Dave Bledsoe of FreeVerse Photography for the wonderful pics) for joining the party, lifting a beverage, and building your book collection. Won’t be long until we have two more to add to it ….
