Double Book Release: Jai Arun Ravine + Miriam Ching Yoon Louie

At Myns Warehouse.

Two trusted alternative presses, Timeless Infinite Light and Small Press Traffic, are teaming up to do a double book release this Friday at “Myns Warehouse” (2300A Market St., Oakland). Timeless is releasing Jai Arun Ravine’s The Romance of Siam: A Pocket Guide, a subverted travel guide that takes issue with the desire that many white people have to travel to Thailand for the purpose of letting loose and reinventing themselves. Small Press is promoting Miriam Ching’s Not Contagious — Just Cancer, a debut novel published by the Asian radical feminist press Rabbit Roar, about a Korean woman who tends to bloody patients at an Oakland hospital, meanwhile attempting to ignore the sickness that’s causing her to cough up blood as well. The event will feature readings by Ravine, Ching, and Arisa White, as well as a performance by Ieumsai, a Korean poongmul drumming group based in Oakland.
