The Crumpled Press is pleased to announce that two new books will be coming out late this summer. The first is poetry: "How It All Came True, Poems for My Daughter" by Michael Larrain. The second is fiction: "Whatever Else Used to Grow Around Here," a collection of short stories by Brooklyn's own Lauren Belski.

On August 10th from 7pm - 9pm, The Crumpled Press will be hosting the book release of "How It All Came True" at Zinc Bar at 82 W. 3rd St. in Greenwich Village. The event will start off with the classic rock and roll of Rick Redondo and Friends, and culminate in a reading and book signing by Michael Larrain --fresh off the plane from Sonoma County California.

Crumpled Press author Derek McGee's new piece on the occupy Wall Street movement is the cover story in this week's issue of The Nation.

Copies of his When I Wished I Was Here: Dispatches from Fallujah are still available for purchase. The book has sold more than a thousand hand-stitched copies.
