Story/Stereo Week! "Inspiration & Process"

In yesterday's Washington Post Going Out Guide, in plugging Friday's event at TWC, the WP calls Story/Stereo "one of our favorite regular events in the area, a laid-back evening that combines literature and music while giving the creators a chance to explain their inspiration and process."

Pretty cool. Since this is Story/Stereo week I want to give a shout out to the man who designed the now iconic logo for Story/Stereo (in fact, as soon as we saw it we judged it iconic). John Foster owns Bad People Good Things and has a new book out himself: 1000 Indie Posters. And this logo is, we all felt, spot on brilliant.

Year 2 of Story/Stereo started with great news: Our Emerging Writer Fellowship program, around which Story/Stereo is centered, would receive funding from the National Endowment for the Arts. Clearly, we'd tapped into something important. The shows this year have been varied in terms of presenter and performer, attendance and buzz. But the quality of the shows has never waned, not once. Here's James Hannaham reading from his novel God Says No at Story/Stereo 11:
