Grove Press, the Evergreen Review, and the Revolution of the Word - Sponsored by Seven Stories Press, and the Creative Publishing and Critical Journalism Program at The New School

Tuesday, April 3, 2018 at 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm

Bob and Sheila Hoerle Lecture Hall, Room UL105, University Center, U L105 63 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10003

Grove Press and its house journal, the Evergreen Review, revolutionized the publishing industry and radicalized the reading habits of the "paperback generation." At the helm was Barney Rosset, a provocative publisher who became bastion for a free speech, leading numerous successful legal battles and securing landmark rulings against censorship.

Join us for a panel discussion on the legacy of Barney Rosset’s work, featuring Loren Glass, University of Iowa professor and author of Rebel Publisher: Grove Press and the Revolution of the Word (Seven Stories, April 2018), and Ed Halter, film critic, co-founder of Light Industry, and editor (with Barney Rosset) of From the Third Eye: The Evergreen Review Film Reader (Seven Stories, March 2018). The discussion will be moderated by John Oakes, head of The New School Publishing Institute, co-founder and co-publisher of O/R Books, and publisher of the revived online Evergreen Review.

Copies of From the Third Eye: The Evergreen Review Film Reader and Rebel Publisher: Grove Press and the Revolution of the Word will be available for purchase following the discussion.

Sponsored by Seven Stories Press, and the Creative Publishing and Critical Journalism program at The New School.
