Laura Goldstein and Jennifer Karmin, curators of the Red Rover reading series are working their way through:

The Encyclopedia Project Coedited by Tisa Bryant, Miranda Mellis, and Kate Schatz, the serial book project is a really innovative compilation of writing in a variety of forms, set up like a large reference. However, because of the surprising range of topics and writing styles, it becomes the best source for everything you never knew about. The newest volume, F-K, has 400 pages and 209 entries of essays, short stories, collages, translations, plays, lists, drawings, photographs, collages, and much more. Some of our favorite contemporary writers, artists, scholars, activists, educators, and performers make up the 193 contributors, including Amina Cain, CA Conrad, Krista Franklin, Bhanu Kapil, John Keene, Sueyeun Juliette Lee, Jena Osman, Vanessa Place, Anne Waldman, and Ronaldo Wilson. And best of all, the editors are currently taking submissions for the third volume, L-P, through June 1. Send them over your entries (encyclopediaproject.org), which can be anywhere between one sentence and 4,000 words.
