The Buffalo Small Press Book Fair 2015!
Saturday April 18 & Sunday April 19
Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum
Porter Hall, 453 Porter Ave., Buffalo, NY
Since 2006 the Buffalo Small Press Book Fair (BSPBF) has been bringing together zinesters, micropresses, poets, chapbook makers and indie artists of all sorts under one roof, with the goal of promoting the work while keeping it accessible, affordable and inclusive. Vendors from all over the U.S. and Canada flock to Buffalo for two magical days in April – but the event has actually expanded to four, with readings, events and parties happening from Thursday onward. It’s a great time and barely a two-hour drive from our offices here in Toronto – why not go make a mini weekend-road trip Sat April 18/Sun April 19 and go check out some of the most exciting and original independent publications happening right now?
Saturday night’s reading schedule includes folks from Bloof Books, Furniture Press and SunnyOutside Books, some of whom are featured in our next issue, due out in mid-April, in a column by our assistant editor Jonathan Valelly! (You can read the story on our NUB mobile app now.) On Sunday there will be a host of rad open workshops as part of the fair. All events are free and open to the public and there are still more to be announced!
