Support independent publishers!

Stolen directly from NY Mag because it's 9:30 am and I am TIRED. [Go Cowboys! 11-1!]

The 20th Annual Independent and Small Press Book Fair
New York Center for Independent Publishing
20 W. 44th St., New York, NY 10036 nr. Sixth Ave
12/1 thru 12/2
Sat-Sun, 11am-5pm

The New York Center for Independent Publishing’s 20th-Annual Independent and Small-Press Book Fair, in the old­–New York confines of the General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen’s landmark building, is a little-press junkie’s dream come true. Akashic Books, Overlook Press, and Soft Skull, among 150 other imprints, will be on hand hawking wares, of course, but the two-day event will also feature a Q&A with Fugazi singer Ian MacKaye (addressing “independent culture,” what else?), readings by Katha Pollitt and Amiri Baraka, and—look out!—a lit-trivia competition between the editors of the journal A Public Space and The New York Review of Books. — Tayt Harlin
