Itinerant Literate Bookstop
4824 Chateau Avenue, North Charleston, SC 29405
In this literary workshop, multi-disciplinary artist is will lead a discussion about what a book is and is not, and what it can be. Key lessons learned from independent publishing and setting up a publishing house to publish other’s books will also be shared. The medium of books will be discussed as a forum for individual contemplation, group sharing and inquiry, and a way to bring the future into the present. This last concept, called life scripting, will be explained to help others learn how to write their own future. Readings from is’s own life scripting journal, Book of Tomorrows, will provide examples, and several guided activities from the companion workbook, Fortune, will take place. This program will help attendees explore how to use books to connect to themselves, others, and the world around them.
