March marks the 10th annual celebration of National Small Press Month (NSPM), co-sponsored by the Small Press Center; PMA, the Independent Book Publishers Association; and the Council of Literary Magazines and Presses (CLMP).

Bookstores with Book Sense will find information about the celebration, including 10 ways booksellers can commemorate NSPM and a colorful poster featuring a self-portrait and quote by Kurt Vonnegut, in the February Red Box. The poster, which can form the basis of a NSPM exhibit in bookstores, includes the tagline, "Books Beyond the Obvious: Support Independent Publishing."

Others supporters of NSPM are the American Booksellers Association, Biblio Distribution, Book Sense, National Book Network, Seven Stories Press, Small Press Distribution, Ingram Publishing, Lulu.com, RJ Communications, and BookExpo America.

National Small Press Month Coordinator Carol Hoenig encourages booksellers to send information about their NSPM events for inclusion on the Small Press Month website. Hoenig can be reached at [email protected] or (516) 396-1416. Orders for additional posters, which come in units of five, should be sent to [email protected].
