Kelly Writers House Book Launch

The Kelly Writers House presents the First Annual Beltran Family Award for Innovative Teaching & Mentoring: 
“I LET A SONG GO OUT OF MY HEART,” a handmade letterpress edition of Sam Allingham’s short story

Join us for a party in honor of the handmade letterpress edition of Sam Allingham's short story "I Let A Song Go Out of My Heart," based on the life of jazz clarinetist Artie Shaw. This artist's book edition, designed and produced by Henry Steinberg at Penn's Robinson Press (an imprint of the The Common Press), celebrates the story's setting and concept through its period-conscious design and construction. This publication was made possible by the 2012 Beltran Family Award For Innovative Teaching & Mentoring Award, whose recipient, Karen Rile, initiated the project to bring together some of the resources within the KWH community into an interdisciplinary literary, creative, and educational adventure.


Tuesday, February 19, at 7:00 PM in the Arts Café
