National Book Critics Circle Celebrates Small Press Month with Panel Discussion—March 30 at NYU Bookstore

March 15, 2011
303

The National Book Critics Circle (NBCC) celebrates Small Press Month 2011 with a panel discussion on the challenges facing critics who review books from small publishing houses on Wednesday, March 30, 6 p.m. at the NYU Bookstore, 726 Broadway (between Astor Place & Washington Place).

Small presses are confronted with the declining number of newspaper and magazine pages devoted to reviewing all books, but small-press books in particular. Helping to fill this void is the burgeoning number of online review outlets, as well as intellectual and academic journals, both new and old, that are striving to keep the small-press tradition alive.

Panelists include: author Tim Brown, whose novels include Deconstruction Acres, Left of the Loop, Walking Man, and Second Acts; John Reed, an associate creative writing professor at New School University and the book review editor of The Brooklyn Rail; John Madera, who edits the blog Big Other, a forum on contemporary writing and culture, and the journal The Chapbook Review; and John Deming, editor in chief of Coldfront Magazine. The session will be moderated by NBCC Board Member Barbara Hoffert, editor of Library Journal’s book review section.

Small Press Month is a nationwide celebration highlighting the work produced by independent publishers. Held annually in March, Small Press Month raises awareness about the need for broader venues of literary expression, showcasing some of the most diverse, exciting, and significant voices being published today.

The event is free and open to the public. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, call 212.998.4667 or go to www.bookstores.nyu.edu. Subways: N, R (8th Street); 6 (Astor Place).
