Part of the Northern Spark Festival, the Call and Answer Project will be hosted by local artist Amanda Lovelee. Her event, taking place at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts, is an all-night book-printing and square-dancing party. From dusk till dawn there will be four presses run by volunteers who are aiming to print 2,000 booklets, plus participants keeping the festive folk dance alive. Further entertainment for guests includes a dance-movie marathon, poetry readings, and, later in the night (or early the next morning), a DJ will be spinning all of the hottest tunes (the website promises a spin of the generation-enduring "Chicken Dance"). And, of course, there will be coffee and pie served all night long. 9 p.m. to 5:28 a.m.
