Ben Mirov’s poem “Hi-Fives”, which appears in Hider Roser from Octopus Books, was made into a short film by Daniel Lichtenberg. Remember though, you have to be a winner to hi-five.

Also, you want to buy these Bad Blood broadsides from us at the Octopus Books table in Boston next week. They’re designed and letter-pressed by Stacey Tran. They have Patricia Lockwood and Ben Mirov poems on them. But for now, you need to go to bed. It is your bedtime. Then you need to wake up and try to do better this time.

Come to ADX for a Bad Blood to help Octopus Books and Poor Claudia celebrate the official release of two of our newest books: Ben Mirov’s Hider Roser (Octopus Books) and Elaine Kahn’s A Voluptuous Dream During an Eclipse (Poor Claudia). Ben and Elaine will be reading poems with Rebecca Farivar, author of Correct Animal (Octopus Books), and Brian Foley, author of The Constitution (Black Ocean, forthcoming).
And we’ll let you sip on some Gigantic Beer if you remember to put some coin in the har har jar. Mingle is at 7:30. Tingle is at 8.

One of the most anticipated Bad Blood readings yet, BBXV, is less than a week away. Eileen Myles, Ben Mirov, Patricia Lockwood, and Donald Dunbar, the latter three of whom will be officially launching brand new books of poems from Octopus Books, Octopus Books, and Fence Books, respectively. In preparation, I have been doing my chin-ups and lunges, and for his own preparation, Jacob Schraer of the Portland Mercury has highlighted the series and the event with an article in the newest issue.

Hey all you Octo-fans, I have two things to tell you. The new editor of Octopus Magazine, Joseph Mains, who is sweating over the newest issue right right now, took some time out to answer a few questions about what’s up for Lit Bridge.

And if you’re an Octo-fan in the Bay area, 3 of our authors are reading Saturday night for the San Francisco Lit Crawl. Ben Mirov, the author of Hider Roser, which will be available for sale for the first time at this reading, will be joined by Claire Becker, author of Where We Think It Should Go, and Rebecca Farivar, author of Correct Animal.

In the premier episode of In Conversation, Coldfront's new video interview series, Ben Mirov talks poetry, and reads some poems from his book, Hider Roser, which will be published by Octopus Books in September.

Along with our new assistant editor, Hajara Quinn, I read through Ben Mirov's forthcoming Octopus Books book, Hider Roser, last night, so we can get it in your hands by August. And now I can’t stop staring at this poem-film of his.
