Join Kim Dana Kupperman, founding editor of Welcome Table Press, for a prose reading featuring friends of the press: Robert Atwan, Dustin Beall Smith, and Suzanne Menghraj.
Welcome Table Press was founded in 2002 in her downeast Maine kitchen. Originally serving as a vehicle for Food For Thought, a miniature, hand-sewn periodical featuring lyric essays of 1,500 words or less, original art, and a recipe for a local, seasonal dish, the Press has expanded its vision, dedicating itself to publishing and celebrating the essay in all its forms. Its first volume, You. An Anthology of Essays Devoted to the Second Person, was edited by Kupperman and published in February 2013.
Kim Dana Kupperman is the author of a critically acclaimed collection of essays, I Just Lately Started Buying Wings: Missives from the Other Side of Silence (Graywolf, 2010), which received the 2009 Katharine Bakeless Nason Prize in Nonfiction from the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference. Among her many accomplishments, are notable mentions in the Pushcart Prize anthology (2007; 2010) and Best American Essays (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013).
