January 24, 2013
The New Indie Force In Publishing
To initiate an ongoing debate on the state of independent publishing, Spoonbill & Sugartown Booksellers is bringing together local indie authors who have chosen to forgo traditional publishing and forge their own paths to authorship. Through consistently selling out at indie bookstores around the nation and garnering acclaim for their work, these wordsmiths are proving to be the vanguard of a new model for publishing. The night features m. craig (The Narrows), Susan Kirschbaum (Who Town), Nathaniel Kressen (Concrete Fever), Vivian Walsh (The Oxygen Thief) and Rami Shamir (Train to Pokipse) — who will talk about the struggles and joys of independent publishing. Specific issues of finance, book-production, editing, and promotion will also be addressed. The authors will share the various approaches they’ve taken in dealing with these issues, while being questioned by the evening’s moderator and Spoonbill’s book buyer, Jamie Johnston. The event will take place on Tuesday January 29, 2013 at 7.30 PM at Spoonbill & Sugartown in Williamsburg.
