Meet at our table today at 2pm @sfartbookfair for Calvin Rocchio's plein air reading from his new publication!! A reader interpolating text from Edward Abbey's Monkey Wrench Gang, Buckminster Fuller, Clarrisa Pinkola Estes, Tessa Carolyn McLuhan, Jeremy Rifkin, Aldo Leopold, Alan Chadwick, John Mcphee, Robert JM Rickard. The book imagines new perspectives on current forms of environmental protest and new forms of sensitivity to the ecological grounds we think and live on. "I sold a drawing given to me by Eva Hesse to buy 5 acres across the road so no one's ranchette would interfere with my view of the Oritz Mountains and their scenic gold-mine scar" - Lucy Lippard
