[US] Lit! Squire Foundation and SB Public Market Offer Proust-While-You-Wait


Image of [US] Lit! Squire Foundation and SB Public Market Offer Proust-While-You-WaitThis freaky french vending machine at the SB public market wants you to push its buttons. You've nothing to fear but literature!
Francis Ford Coppola—writer, director, producer, Brando-wrangler—is a raving fan of the short story. In 1997 (for instance) he launched the much-garlanded literary and art vehicle Zoetrope: All-Story. So it was that when Coppola learned of a nutty Roald-Dahl-like gizmo whose minimalist three buttons promised a new approach to literature, his famous auteur beard broke into a grin and he dove in with brio. “He’d found us through his daughter in Paris and was our first client in the US,” says Kristan Leroy, export director for French publisher Short Édition. “The first installation in the U.S. was at his café Zoetrope in San Francisco.”

Share the love of short stories: lucky-dip stories at your school


Image of Share the love of short stories: lucky-dip stories at your schoolMillions of stories for a more poetic world !
When I read about the fabulous Short Story Dispenser by French publisher Short Edition, I imagined how wonderful it would be for each school to have their own short story dispensing machine. Then, as I was walking along a corridor of my own school, I noticed that there is a designated wall where students can leave their artwork, which that day was mostly photos and illustrations. I started wondering how many schools might have similar boards or walls for students which could be used for sharing not only visual arts, but also stories.

Once upon a time, in one of the busiest parts of one of the busiest cities in the world, the people were so busy, they didn’t have time to finish reading lengthy works of fiction.

“I’ve always loved the challenge of the short story - creating a whole world in just a few pages,” Horowitz said. “I hope it will entertain tube travellers who will know, at least, that they won’t have the frustration of having to get off before the end!”
