[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.”

Image of Literary kiosk concludes introductory tour, more to arriveWith more than 5,000 stories distributed during a test-run tour in area libraries, “short story machines” are predicted to be a hit in the fall.
From the Iowa City Public Library to the Marion Public Library, a literary kiosk has made monthly stops in Iowa City and area libraries as part of its “Creative Corridor” tour. It will make its final stop in May at the Eastern Iowa Airport. As part of a trial period before the official, permanent implementation of more “short story machines” this spring, the literary kiosk has been delighting library-goers by dispensing one-, three-, and five-minute stories on receipt-like slips of paper, said Amy Chen, English & American literature librarian at the University of Iowa Main Library.

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.

A new kind of vending machine came to Carolina this week, dispensing free short stories written by UNC-Chapel Hill students, faculty and staff.
The literary vending machines print a blend of original, classic and contemporary works of literature at eight locations throughout campus and in Chapel Hill, including the Carolina Union, Adams School of Dentistry and the Chapel Hill Public Library, to encourage people to engage with the literary arts. The installation is a collaboration between Arts Everywhere, UNC Press, the College of Arts & Sciences’ Department of English and Comparative Literature, and publishing company Short Edition. “Bringing literature into the daily lives of people who may not normally be in that fictional fold is going to be valuable to everybody,” said Daniel Wallace, Creative Writing Program director and professor.
