Publishers Ken Baumann and Eric Obenauf in conversation
June 8, 2020
Join us for a live virtual conversation with founder and publisher of Sator Press, Ken Baumann, and Two Dollar Radio editorial director and publisher, Eric Obenauf. There will be a Q&A with the audience following their discussion.
Ken Baumann is author of the novels Solip, Say, Cut, Map, a series of thrillers including The Country and The City, the nonfiction books EarthBound and Eat the Flowers, and occasionally posts poems and essay here. For a decade Baumann acted in film and television, and currently helps students at St. John's College. Sator Press—and Satyr Press, an imprint—was founded in 2009 by Baumann. For a decade it operated as a nonprofit that sustainably produced innovative literature with handsome, impeccable design. As of spring 2020, Two Dollar Radio is pleased to carry on this tradition through distribution of Sator Press and Satyr Press titles.
