Co-Launch Party for Beeswax and Monday Night Magazines

When: Fri., Nov. 16, 7 p.m. 2012

For all the talk of print dying, 'zines, lit mags, and various other publications of the decidedly low-budget, low-gloss, underground and indie persuasion aren't just hanging on -- they're thriving. To wit, on Friday, Nov. 16, not one but two new local magazines celebrate their new issues at Diesel (5433 College Ave., Berkeley): Monday Night, a long-running journal of poetry and prose; and Beeswax, an Oakland-based multimedia mag that employs such delightfully old-school flights of design fancy as letterpress covers and hand-stitched spines. Both will be represented by a bevy of high-profile local talent -- Monday Night by writer-artist Sean Craven and poet Valerie Witte, and Beeswax by novelist Hugh Behm-Steinberg and poet Diana Aehegma -- and are certain to double-handedly restore your faith in the power of ink on paper. 7 p.m., free. 510-653-9965 or
