New Lit Gallery in the Works

Regent Press, an East Bay publishing mainstay with more than a hundred books under its belt, is marking its thirty-year anniversary by launching a new art space, the Regent Gallery, at 48th and Telegraph (adjacent to Hooper’s Chocolates) in Oakland’s Temescal District.

Its grand opening on February 24 will feature the photography of Harold Adler, author of The Whole World Is Watching, and readings by two Regent authors: Jerry Beisler (whose The Bandit of Kabul – in which hippies set up camp in Afghanistan – was one of 2007’s most madcap memoirs) and Marcelline Krafchik, whose The Romance of Elsewhere recounts fifty years of travel in sixty countries and encounters with a stalker, a boa constrictor, many famous people, and the CIA.
