The Jaffe Center runs classes and other events as well as being home to the Jaffe Collection. This Saturday, there will be a special online, non-traditional Wayzgoose.

From John Cutrone:

Hello My Friends:

John Cutrone here from Convivio Bookworks in Lake Worth, Florida, where I have been knee-deep filming and editing a thing called a Wayzgoose and I sure would love it if you’d accept my invitation to attend. You don’t have to leave your home to do so: It’s an online video event at the website of the JAFFE CENTER for BOOK ARTS and the World Premiere is this Saturday evening at 7 Eastern.

Like any good World Premiere, this one has an Official Trailer. Click here to watch: It’s 59 seconds of anticipation and delight. What to expect on Saturday night (or anytime after the premiere)? Well, for starters, and for better or worse, I am the host. You’ll get to watch my interview with the amazing letterpress printer JENNIFER FARRELL of Chicago’s STARSHAPED PRESS, and that’s followed by a Wayzgoose concert by singer/songwriter PATTY LARKIN. My suggestion is to enjoy this Wayzgoose with a steaming plate of waffles. I won’t say why now, but trust me: make the waffles. I’ll explain when you watch.

The Wayzgoose is scheduled for Saturday, March 25, 2023, at 7 P.M. Eastern Daylight Savings time. The event webpage can be found here.

If you don’t want to attend a Wayzgoose this weekend, you can look at more videos from the Jaffe Center instead.
