Nell Zink in NYT!

The New York Times Book Review has just given an absolutely glowing review of SPD's bestselling fall fiction title, The Wallcreeper.  If you're wondering how often SPD titles get reviewed in the NY Times the answer is...well...really not a whole lot.  To celebrate this great review SPD is offering the book for 35% off. Just use promotion code NYT as you checkout. (Also, for folks in the Bay Area, comes see Zink at Green Apple Books on October 23rd, 7pm, at their 9th Avenue location).

2 SPD Titles Honored by National Book Award!

SPD is delighted to hear that Fred Moten's The Feel Trio, published by Letter Machine Editions, is now officially a FINALIST for this year's National Book Award in Poetry.  Only four other poetry books are among those finalists (and it's a truly great list, but we still are pulling for Fred!). Big congratulations as well to Nightboat Press, whose book A Several World by Brian Blanchfield made the longlist, which is also a great honor.  Also note that SPD volunteer Eric Sneathen made A Several World a staff pick before it was cool: read that here!

Gov General Awards

2 SPD Titles on GGLA Shortlist

The Governor General's Literary Awards are Canada's most prestigious literary prize, and SPD is delighted to see two of our titles on the shortlist for their poetry award.  Congrats to Brick Books and BookThug for this great achievement!  See below for the two titles, both of which we are certain would meet the approval of Lord Tweedsmuir, who founded the prizes back in 1937.  Let's hope an SPD press "brings home a Tweedsmuir" this year!
