- "The Life of Print:" Caroline Picard of Green Lantern Press
- Time: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
- Location: Morgan Hall 109
- Description: The English Graduate Organization invites everyone to “The Life of Print: How Printed Matter Facilitates Dialogue for the Green Lantern Press,” a lecture by Caroline Picard, founder and editor of this independent Chicago press.
Picard's lecture will focus on the independent publishing industry and the work of her press. Founded in 2005, Green Lantern is an artist-run, non-profit press focused on emerging and forgotten texts in order to bridge the gap between contemporary experience and historical form. Green Lantern is dedicated to a self-described "slow media" approach; each book they print is conceived of as a curatorial site, complete with artist plates, ephemeral inserts, and silk-screen covers.
EGO is very happy to welcome Caroline Picard and the Green Lantern Press to WIU, and invites students and faculty across disciplines to take advantage of this great opportunity to dialogue with an artist on the cutting-edge of contemporary print production.
Sponsored by the Department of English & Journalism, Visiting Lectures Committee, and the Council on Students' Activities Funds.
