See You This Weekend at the 2008 Indie and Small Press Book Fair in New York!
The 2008 Independent and Small Press Book Fair is practically here! This weekend (Saturday, December 6, 10-6, and Sunday, December 7, 11-5) the historic General Society building will fill with publishers, writers, bake sale cookies, and even a fortune teller, all celebrating the art of independent publishing. The Fair takes place in Manhattan at 20 West 44th Street and will feature over 150 cutting-edge indie presses (a perfect way to to get some holiday shopping done) and twelve free programs including: How to Publish Your Own Book with Ellen Lupton; How to Catch a Literary Agent's Eye with Katharine Sands, The Art of the Memoir: How to Tell and Sell your Life Story with David Henry Sterry, and a Literary Trivia Smackdown! And don't forget to stop by the Overlook Press booth, which will be loaded up with new releases and great books for holiday gift-giving.
