Curbside Splendor will be at the Logan Square Farmers Market this weekend

Curbside Splendor

Last month I reviewed Victor David Giron's debut novel, Sophomoric Philosophy, and told you about the new Chicago small press he had started in order to get the book (and others) out, Curbside Splendor. And now I've heard from Victor on something cool that Curbside will be doing this weekend -- namely, they're setting up their own booth at the Logan Square Farmers Market, and will be hawking their wares to the organic-food crowd. This is a great idea, I think, to target the kinds of people who are likely to buy your own products, then go find them in unusual environments where you're not competing with a thousand other competitors from your own industry; I think all small arts organizations should be out there doing more stuff like this, and I applaud Curbside for taking the initiative.

Anyway, locals can catch them this Sunday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m, in the lobby of the Congress Theater at 2135 N. Milwaukee Avenue. (That's very close to the Logan Square blue-line el stop, for those who don't know.) Local produce and local literature, all in the same venue; how can you go wrong?
