A celebration of Dalkey Archive Press, featuring authors Ben Slotky and Curtis White, plus backlist recommendations from indie booksellers, including PSB's own Josh Cook!
Dalkey Archive Press is one of the most storied independent publishers in America, one that has left an incredible mark on the literary world, the nonprofit publishing field, and thousands upon thousands of readers. With a matchless backlist from writers who have been advancing the art of fiction for decades, both internationally and domestically, the press has played a major role in the history of letters. As it approaches its fortieth year, though, it's also a growing enterprise, bringing classic work to new audiences and launching the next generation of boundary-breaking authors.
Join us on Thursday, December 1 at 6:00 p.m. PST/9:00 p.m. EST as some of the best independent booksellers around discuss their favorite Dalkey Archive titles from the past (THEN). It'll be a full slate of fresh fiction, but that's only a prelude. The main event (NOW) features Ben Slotky, author of An Evening of Romantic Lovemaking, one of the press's most recent novels, in conversation with Dalkey veteran Curtis White. We'll also be hearing a bit from Editor in Chief Chad Post about where things are heading (NEXT).
Attendance is free, but you have the option when registering to make a donation to BINC, the Book Industry Charitable Foundation. You'll also be able to order on the spot from the bookstore of your choice throughout the evening. Raise a glass with us as we celebrate Dalkey Archive Press, past, present, and future!
