Small Press Distribution needs you terribly

If you are looking for a way to dedicate a few brief hours to small
press literature, consider voluteering at SPD on Sunday, June 26.

Small Press Distribution (SPD) is having our annual inventory that day,
and we need all the help we can get. As many of you know, SPD is the
nation's only distributor dedicated exclusively to independently-published
and small press literature.

The inventory will run from 10am until 7pm, and you can stop by anytime.

Please let Neil Alger or Brent Cunningham
know that you’re coming beforehand.

Staff and volunteers will be counting every book in the warehouse (there
are over 13,000 titles). It’s a great chance to get intimate with a few
rows of SPD’s titles, and to meditate on the many charms of the number

Plus: every single hour you can donate helps SPD continue to provide
access to hard-to-find titles, especially the thousands of poetry titles
that only SPD carries and champions!

Stop by for a quick hour or two of counting, or stay for the whole day.
If you can stay for three or more hours, we’ll happily give you a 40%
one-time discount on your next order from SPD. There will be pizza and
soda available, and of course the camaraderie of fellow poets, writers
and small press readers.

SPD is at 1341 Seventh Street, cross street Gilman, in Berkeley.
