The Community of Literary Magazines and Presses (CLMP) is inviting all booksellers attending BookExpo 2017 (May 31–June 2) to the CLMP Small Press Mingle on Tuesday, May 30. The event will take place from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at CLMP’s offices at 154 Christopher Street, Suite 3C, in New York City.
Attending booksellers can expect to meet and mingle with publishers and editors from the small press member publishers of CLMP. Party goers will be treated to snacks and drinks in CLMP’s independent publishing library, which offers a multitude of literary magazines, chapbooks, small press books, and other innovative contemporary publishing projects to browse.
“Indie booksellers and indie lit publishers are the two mighty engines getting great literary work to readers — we’d love to encourage even greater camaraderie between them,” said Jeffrey Lependorf, executive director for CLMP.
Booksellers who would like to attend the party should RSVP to CLMP Director of Programs and Strategic Communications Natalie Mesnard and include their name and professional affiliation in the e-mail. Attendees will also need to sign in at the door.
