Who we are: When we lived in Seattle instead of going out to the bars or to hang with friends we would have an "art night" instead. This became our practice and we would work two hours a night after our day jobs. Early on we only published our work or that of our family, my father in law is also a poet. Then we began to expand, and co founder Angie Trudell Vasquez, began publishing other people's work and found great joy in bringing out other voices. Titles included Revolution & Reclamation, and Cries for Justice, now Art Night Books is releasing Through This Door - Wisconsin In Poems, with Wisconsin Poet Laureate, Margaret Rozga. Art Nights Books published two collections of poetry by Angie entitled, The Force Your Face Carries, in Seattle, and Love in War Time, in Milwaukee. In May 2019, Finishing Line Press printed half her MFA thesis entitled, In Light, Always Light. Co founder, Devin Trudell, released two dramatic comic novels entitled, The Man Who Lived With Roaches and Three Stories, where he illustrated poems of his father in two of the pieces. Devin is currently working on writing, illustrating and researching the history of propaganda.
