Fleeting Pages Rocks My World

Fleeting Pages represents exactly what I love about the Pittsburgh literary scene. We have passion, enthusiasm. We are scrappy and hardworking. We are people who take a chance to do something risky, last minute, all for the love of words.

In essence, Fleeting Pages consists of taking over (taking back??) one of the spaces, left empty by a failed big box bookstore in Pittsburgh, for one month, starting April 30th, and filling it with independent & self-published work of all kinds, book arts, workshops, events, and..?(insert your ideas here)?… All revolving around various forms of written self-expression.

Weave is going to be involved in a few different ways. Of course we'll be available in the store, but we're also planning some workshops and perhaps a reading. I love the idea of reinventing an old, corporate space and re-imagining as a grassroots, community-driven space. I love the short term nature as well, because it adds a sense of urgency and really gets people off their asses and in the space. It's more than a store in this way. It's more like a month long community gathering. A space for intersections.

You should contact them with ideas or if you have a book to sell.
