An Evening with Renee Gladman

Cover art for TOAF by Renee Gladman

We are thrilled to present an evening with Renee Gladman, who's returning to the Bay Area on the occasion of the reissue of her 2008 groundbreaking book To After That (TOAF). Originally published by Lyn Hejinian and Travis Ortiz's publication project Atelos, the book was written during the years Gladman lived in San Francisco

TOAF is a recuperative song, an effort to give space and life to an abandoned project, but it is also, itself, a beautiful meditation on process, distance and duration—a reminder that time is always a subject of  writing.
