Book Release

We're celebrating the book release of Sibling Rivalry Press's newest titles, A House Made of Water by Michelle Lin and Having a Coke with Godzilla by Kazumi Chin. They're two poets who are near and dear to us and we couldn't think of a better place to celebrate their debut book releases! Also, join us for the opening of our new Office Gallery Exhibition by Diana Li!

Kazumi Chin is the author of Having a Coke With Godzilla. He works to build loving communities with marginalized people, to put language to the mechanisms of structures and identities, and to create spaces and tools that allow others to do the same. He is interested in scholarship at the intersection of art-making and critical theory, and has a profound love for maps, spreadsheets, algorithms, taxonomies, simulations, and also poetry & the mythical power of true friendship.
