New Rivers Press will be 45 years old in 2013, and the literary press founded by the late C.W. (Bill) Truesdale is starting the celebration this week with an evening of readings by Nick Healy, Sharon Suzuki-Martinez, Nick Knittel and Tim Nolan.
There will be music by Minnesota singer, songwriter andguitarist Diane Jarvi, who writes poetry as Diane Jarvenpa. Her third collection, “The Tender, Wild Things,” was published by New Rivers in 2007.
When Truesdale died in 2001, New Rivers was the oldest continuously publishing press in the country. After some tense months when it looked as though it would fold, New Rivers found a home at Minnesota State University-Moorhead. Since the first New Rivers books published in Moorhead came out in 2003, next year will also be the press’s 10th anniversary at MSU. Read the rest of this entry →
