Strike Four Book Release Party

S4_Cover_webUnpiano Books is pleased to announce the release of a book of collected writings from San Francisco author Mike McGuirk.

Mike McGuirk has worked as a writer in San Francisco for more than 15 years. His writing has appeared in the San Francisco Bay Guardian, The Stranger, the Cleveland Scene and SOMA Magazine, and on As an independent publisher, Unpiano Books aims to support and promote lesser-known work with specialized small-run releases both locally and across the country. Most well known for producing art and photo books, this is Unpiano’s first literary release.

McGuirk’s voice takes many different forms, often wandering somewhere between the legacies of noted drunk Charles Bukowski and music journalist Lester Bangs. The work collected here comprises stories, reviews, rants and even box scores. Always insightful and often about more than what is written on the page, McGuirk’s writing helps us digest difficult topics with a wry sense of humor.

Come celebrate the release of this new book with music and a drink. The author will be in attendance.

7-10pm / Music around 8pm
