Thursday 14th November, 6pm

Pipi Press is an initiative to publish critical and hopeful content which encompasses the poetic and political. The not-for-profit publishing house takes its name from the whakataukī, he pipi te tuatahi, he kaunuku te tuarua, translated as first the small entering wedge, second the large splitting wedge, referring to the felling of a tree. We envision our books as small beginnings towards wider change. 

Join Gabi & Cait from Pipi Press as they launch their first book, In Common, in Te Whanganui-a-Tara at Enjoy, and give a talk on the production of the book. In Common is a multi-format publication, printed on a Risograph GR3770 and section sewn in Tāmaki Makaurau in an edition of 300. Come along to hear about the joys and tribulations of publishing in Aotearoa and have a look at the product of our labour(& love)-intensive production process.

Join Gabi and Cait from Pipi Press for a friendly and informal reading and discussion group where we will share knowledge and thoughts around two texts from In Common (their first book that has recently launched): Water, an introduction by Nate Rew and A visit to Maungahuka, a ramble through the history of New Zealand’s conservation estate and some chit-chat about the weather by Eleanor Cooper. This event will be held in the peaceful surrounds of Central Park in Brooklyn.
