Kelsey Street Press has been publishing daring, experimental work for 40 years, including collaborations between poets and visual artists, and a long and growing list of authors' first books. Further, the Berkeley-based press has spawned other like-minded publishing houses and helped to broaden conversations about the fluidity between categories too often considered distinct, such as prose and poetry, male and female. To celebrate, the press is kicking off a trio of April events in the area with a reading and conversation that focuses on Embodiment, Gender and Experimental Writing. Panelists include Patricia Dienstfrey, Amber DiPietra, Eleni Stecopoulos, and Nico Peck, and Susan Gevirtz moderates. A reception follows, and Kelsey Street Press books are on display through May 30.
