The consolidation of publishing house after publishing house into five mega book businesses foretold a future where reading choices for the many would be controlled by the few. In addition, the kind of books being published changed. Small-run and medium-sized sellers fell by the wayside.
But, good news! Small presses began to abound, startups and labors of love, which published what editors felt needed to be published, rather than what might make the executives and shareholders mega bucks.
At Word Week’s Small Publishers Night, we feature four of the best Bay Area small presses: Manic D Press, Nomadic Press, Two Lines Press, and Why There Are Words Press.
Join for an exhibition of books from these excellent publishers and readings by a few of their authors. Free admission and free refreshments provided by Umpqua Bank Noe Valley.
