Paper Cuts, the zine, DIY, and small press reading program on Clocktower Radio, is taking the show on the road with a series of events at bookstores and alternative spaces in the New York City area. Each event will feature writers, zinesters, artists, and performers who typically share their work in print, on paper, and in small editions. Think of it as a traveling micro-art book and zine fair! Come to hear great readers and talk about new work!
The first stop is at Pioneer Books, 289 Van Brunt Street (corner of Pioneer and Van Brunt).

Eno Edet was raised and nurtured by New York’s underground, Eno has taken the lessons and teachings of the city’s most sacred weirdos, and has translated them into his own brand of children stories. These stories are written with the intent to spread love, happiness and imagination throughout the world. But in a very strange way. Enjoy…
