Off the page Many books are "works of art," but seldom do we mean that visually. It's refreshing when writer-artists such as Marcia Weisbrot both celebrate and remind us that literary treasures are indeed objects in which form and content intersect. For example, Weisbrot's miniature paper lingerie Pink Slip contains words about being laid off in its pocket. Curator Summi Kaipa explores these departures as well as more traditional letterpress works in 'What's in a Book? A Look at the Book Arts Scene.' A fundraiser for New Langton Society's literature programs, the exhibition also features architectural works by Nikki Thompson and paper silhouettes of people's instinctual thoughts in Pond Gallery director Marisa Jahn's Animal Hoarders. The evening includes readings by Amanda Davidson, David Larson, and Mary Burger; Erase Errata's Sara Jaffe plays solo, and Daniel Bolig presents his band project Sort of Invisible. 8-11 p.m., New Langton Arts, 1246 Folsom, S.F. $5-$10 sliding scale.
