The Little Book Project WI is a community arts and nonprofit printmaking series. Each limited edition book, which comes out biannually, weaves together visual arts and literary work based on a central theme. The first edition focused on advocacy, the second focused on mental health, and the third edition- to be released soon – focuses on places and spaces. The fourth edition, to be released this fall, will focus on community. The project’s founder, Rachel Werner, joins Dr. Damita Brown to talk about the project.
Rachel Werner is a teaching artist for The Loft Literary Center and Hugo House. Her literary writing and craft essays have been published by Off Menu Press, Digging Through The Fat and Voyage YA Literary Journal. A selection of Rachel’s recipes are also included in Wisconsin Cocktails (UW-Press, 2020)—and her poetry in the anthology Hope Is The Thing: Wisconsinites On Hope and Resilience in the Time of Covid-19 (The Wisconsin Historical Society, 2021).
