      John Doe Headlines Gala Literary Celebration to Benefit Beyond Baroque

      HOLLYWOOD, CA (August 7, 2003) _ The 2003 DIY Book Festival has
      announced that its annual gala awards ceremony honoring independent
      authors and publishers will benefit the Beyond Baroque Literary
      Center of Venice, California.

      The 35-year old landmark bookstore/performance space/publisher will
      be celebrated on Thursday, Oct. 2nd at the Derby nightclub in
      Hollywood. The special night of spoken word performances, music,
      exhibits, panels and literary readings will feature some of Beyond
      Baroque's distinguished alumni, all capped by the 2003 DIY Book
      Festival awards ceremony.

      Tickets for the event are $15 and available by calling the DIY Book
      Festival at 323-665-8068 or may be purchased online at
      www.diybookfestival.com. Entrants to the DIY Book Festival contest
      are admitted free to the awards program.

      The Beyond Baroque Literary Center is a performance and publishing
      forum at the cultural heart of Southern California.

      Formed in 1968 with the publication of an avant-garde poetry
      magazine, the center has grown into a hub for readings, performances,
      special events and ongoing educational classes, including its long-
      running Wednesday Night Poetry workshop. Among its most important
      missions is Beyond Baroque Books, dedicated to emerging and
      overlooked work unavailable elsewhere.

      Headlining the DIY Book Festival benefit will be performances by X's
      John Doe; Pleasant Gehman, author of "The Underground Guide To L.A.";
      Larry Jaffe, International Readings Coordinator for the United
      Nations Dialogue Among Civilizations Through Poetry program; and
      Shawna Kenney, author of "I Was A Teenage Dominatrix." Other
      performers will be announced in the coming weeks.

      through September 25 at www.diybookfestival.com. The DIY Book
      Festival will consider self-published or independent publisher non-
