"Getting the news from poems" by Tarek Chemaly (7UPstairs Publishing)
It is with exceptional pleasure that I share with you the publication of my new e-book "Getting the news from poems" now available form "7UPstairs Publishing." The title is inspired from William Carlos Williams' verses "It is difficult to get the news from poems/ yet men die miserably every day from the lack of what is found there." The e-book contains my collected poetic writings between 2003 and 2008 and falls in voluminous 309 pages. The layout was tastefully executed by Mike Awad and you will find attached herewith a copy of the cover. The official unveiling of the book will take place at the opening of my video art and installations exhibition to be held at the Plevnik-Kronkowska Gallery in Celje - Slovenia between February 6th and March 4th. The book will be distributed exclusively via this email address email@example.com and will be free of charge. It will be sent in the form of PDF file - so you will need an Adobe Acrobat to read it after downloading. Since - on purpose - I do not have a facebook, myspace, or whatever all else social utility page, I urge you to forward this mail to all those you deem interested and interesting. I shall forward a free copy of the e-book to anyone who asks for it.
