From Here / Doll Palace

Atomic Fiction Series presents
FROM HERE by JEN MICHALSKI
DOLL PALACE by SARA LIPPMANN

Thursday, October 2, 7-9PM.
Atomic Books' Eightbar.
Hampden, Baltimore.

Atomic Fiction Series presents an evening with Jen Michalski and Sara Lippmann discussing their new books From Here and Doll Palace.

The stories in Jen Michalski's From Here explore the dislocations and intersections of people searching, running away, staying put. Their physical and emotional landscapes run the gamut, but in the end, they're all searching for a place to call home.

In Sara Lippmann's Doll Palace, a girl ditches her innocence at a state fair. Strippers ponder love over a Brazilian wax. A father falls for a drug-addled babysitter. A mother ends a pregnancy.

Book Release Party for Robert Marbury’s Taxidermy Art!

Bionic fawns. Jewel-encrusted piglets. Martini-sipping winged monkeys. Let artist Robert Marbury be your guide to the denizens of the delightfully macabre world of Rogue Taxidermy. In Taxidermy Art (Artisan Books), Marbury offers the first survey of this provocative art movement, sharing over 100 pieces by today’s leading artists and illustrated workshops to inspire the budding taxidermist.

Celebrate the release of Marbury’s first book at this hometown party, and hear Marbury in conversation with the fine fellows from Bazaar on the history of taxidermy. Followed by Q&A and book signing.

Robert Marbury is a multidisciplinary artist and the director and cofounder of the Minnesota Association of Rogue Taxidermists. In addition to creating his own art, he launched the taxidermy biennial at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles and co-hosts and judges the annual Carnivorous Nights Taxidermy Contest in Brooklyn. Marbury lives in Baltimore, Maryland, and is available for interviews.
