Franki Elliot at HELLO LA

By Naomi Huffman

Last month, Franki Elliot joined AirBnb at their HELLO LA Arts District pop-up salon. She brought her pink typewriter and typed stories for strangers.  

"It's really important to tell your story, to get it out there, because there are people who can relate to it, learn from it, grow, and connect," Franki said. 

Franki was interviewed about the importance of doing what you love. See the video below, and read the full article here!

 

 

Franki's stories bring people together around truths about love, hearbreak, and the beauty of a life lived with passion. Pre-order the book today to share Franki's stories with those that inspire you and those that you love. 

 
MEATY: THE TOUR

By Naomi Huffman

Since 2009, Samantha Irby has been making true fans and friends out of her readers at BITCHESGOTTAEAT and tearing up the live lit scene here in her hometown of Chicago. We were thrilled to release Samantha's first essay collection MEATY earlier this fall, and now we've got more good news: Sam's going on tour.

Tim Kinsella Marvin Tate Joyful Noise RecordingsThe newest album from Joyful Noise Recordings, lengthily and aptly titled "Tim Kinsella Sings the Songs of Marvin Tate by LeRoy Bach Featuring Angel Olsen," will be released on December 3rd! Pre-order the limited edition vinyl, which includes an MP3 download, here.

If you couldn't grasp it from the title, the album features Tim Kinsella and Angel Olsen performing the songs of Marvin Tate, accompanied by multi-instrumentalist Leroy Bach. It's a smooth and emotional listen, sometimes jaunty, sometimes sorrowful, the perfect pairing to a lazy weekend or a quiet afternoon.  

Our favorites are "The Crossing Guard," "Devontae's In a Coma," "Sidetracked in Miami," and "This Time (Not the Next Time)." 

Like what you hear? Pre-order a copy of Tim Kinsella's novel "Let Go and Go On and On" or Marvin Tate's poetry collection "The Amazing Mister Orange," both forthcoming from Curbside Splendor in 2014.
