How do you read a bookstore?

Left-to-right? Back-to-front?

Daedalus, Abel, & Owens will tell books by their covers, improvise 
bibliographic procedures, and (with help from the audience) turn 
everyone into talking books.

*David Abel* is a poet, editor, teacher, and bookseller. This spring saw 
three new publications: /Float/ (Chax Press, Tucson); /Tether (/Barebone 
books, Portland); and /Carrier/ (c_L, Portland). David is a founding 
member of the Spare Room reading series, a Research Fellow of the Center 
for Art + Environment of the Nevada Museum of Art, and a member of the 
artists' and writers' collective 13 Hats. The Text Garage is his 

*Leo Daedalus* is the host of /The Late Now/, the thinking mammal's live 
avant-variety-talk show in Portland and Beyond. A longtime filmmaker, 
writer, musician and purveyor of Dada-Fluxus mayhem, Leo shares his 
passion for avant-garde and out-of-the-mainstream culture with what he 
calls inclusive ludic subversion, the unofficial mission of /The Late 
Now/. See events calendars at leodaedalus.com and thelatenow.com.

*Mark Owens* is a performer and sound poet who began noodling with 
Fluxus contradictions about fifteen years ago. He is inspired by this 
history but is not a Fluxus artist. He was flattered when Alison Knowles 
chose to perform his "Alphabet Sweep" event.
