Zachary Schomburg Kicks Off Summer Tour

Transient

We here at Black Ocean are all anticipating the release of Zachary Schomburg's latest The Book of Joshua, which will be available July 15 as a special hardcover with white foil stamping.

Zach kicks off his book tour Sunday, July 6 at The Pine Box in Seattle, and will be touring across the United States for readings in houses, bars, and bookstores, and will even be featured in his first art reception along the way.

This is also a great opportunity to hear another Black Ocean poet Joshua Marie Wilkinson, who joins Schomburg for many of the following events.
