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, founder of Sator Press
Ken Baumann

For a decade it operated as a nonprofit that sustainably produced innovative literature with handsome, impeccable design.
