Threads Talk Series

Threads, a series of talks curated by Steve Clay and Kyle Schlesinger, is devoted to the art of the book featuring poets, scholars, artists, and publishers. The objective for the series is to build on the discourse within book arts to explore and enrich relationships between various strands of book culture that are often approached in isolation, for example poetry and writing, visual and performing arts, collaboration, design, printing, independent publishing, literary history, critical theory, and material culture to name a few. The talks were recorded before a small studio audience and are available for public consumption on PennSound. Eventually the series will be collected and published in book form.

Threads began in the spring of 2009 in New York City with talks by Alan Loney, Charles Alexander and Simon Cutts. The series now includes Jerome Rothenberg, Cecilia Vicuņa and Jen Bervin. Scheduled talks by Kathy Walkup and Johnanna Drucker will be added over the winter and spring of 2011 with more to follow.
