Publishing students to hold conversation with photographer

Students in Marty Gervais’ editing and publishing practicum course have helped to produce books of poetry, prose, memoir, and stories, but nothing quite like the current project — a collection of images by photojournalist Douglas MacLellan.

Scheduled for release by Black Moss Press in April 2019, In the Face of It will reproduce a selection of MacLellan’s work, from refugee camps in Africa to the streets of Windsor.

Under the guidance of Gervais, the students will edit the content, design the book, and help market it to retailers and consumers.

Two of them, Stephanie Gusain and Julienne Rousseau, will discuss the process with MacLellan in a free public event Friday, Nov. 30. “In the Face of It: a conversation with the photographer” is set for 7 p.m. in the Sho Art, Spirit, and Performance space, located at 628 Monmouth Rd.
