March is Small Press Month: Celebrate!

March is Small Press Month, a time to celebrate the contribution made by independent publishers and small presses to literary life, the spread of knowledge, and general reading fun. It’s also a great time to visit a bookstore and buy a few books by your local publisher (because we all want to keep celebrating into 2011).

Book Publishers Northwest is delighted to be partying at TWO independent bookstores in March.

The events are:

Saturday, March 13, 6:30 to 8:30 pm
Third Place Books, 17171 Bothell Way NE, Lake Forest Park

Saturday, March 27, 11:00 am to 2:00 pm
Edmonds Bookshop, 111 Fifth Avenue South, Edmonds
