SKYLIGHT LITERARY SALON

Yearning for witty repartee and intellectual stimulation? How about wine and hors d'oeuvres? Come join us for our new monthly series, Skylight Salon, where our staff shares their faves from small presses and independent publishers. A modern-day mixer for the literary minded.
This month:

Monica highlights the David R. Godine, Inc., a sweet little publishing house out of Boston, MA that puts only the best fiction and nonfiction that wouldn't get publsihed otherwise. Home of the Black Sparrow books as well as Verba Mundi, this a diverse publisher with a superb list of beautifully bound books with intellectual weight.

Justin gives much love to the Cambridge, MA publishing house, Da Capo Books. Da Capo is a full service purveyor of books with a strong presence in history, music and biography. Newly venturing into pop culture with titles like, "Reading Comics", and putting out edgy works like, "The Hedonsim Handbook, Da Capo Books is a stalwart of indie publishing.

Emily celebrates the socially conscience literary nonprofit publisher, Counterpath Press. Located in Denver, CO, Counterpath supports artists and readers as communities. Pushing the mainstream boundaries of publsihing with its focus on minorities and women as artists, writers and poets, they combine the traditional and nontraditional in genres and discipline as well as format from print to internet-based material.
