Arion Press to be Featured on the PBS NewsHour Tonight

Tonight, Arion Press is the subject of a PBS-TV piece during the evening NewsHour program.

Culture reporter Jeffrey Brown interviews publisher Andrew Hoyem about the history and future of the fine printed book. See our printers, typecasters and bookbinders at work during the actual production of Arion's landmark 100th book, Whitman's Leaves of Grass. There should also be an overview of the great Arion books of our 40-year history and a cameo of poet laureate Robert Hass commenting on Leaves of Grass.

So tune in and alert friends who should know about Arion Press and M&H Type. If you haven't visited our San Francisco facility and watched the books being made, this documentary will be a revelation.

The first television airing on PBS will be at 6 p.m EST. Please check you local listings. If you miss the television broadcast, the NewsHour can be viewed online on the NewsHour website.

In the San Francisco Bay Area, for example, the NewsHour airs at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. on KQED Channel 9 in San Francisco, on KQEH Channel 54 in San Jose, and at 5:30 p.m. on KRCB Channel 22 in the North Bay.
