50th Anniversary SALE!! 
 
Can you believe that SPD's made it 50 years without the warehouse collapsing and the books crumbling irreversibly into dust? JK, but let us have this moment! In a contemporary literary enviroment populated by big corporations and quick-delivery online shopping, we at SPD are really proud of how far we've come in our ability to get small press books from publishers into the hands of those who'd like to read them - all the while staying fiercely independent and powered by minimal staff. We'd like to thank all those who came before us and paved the way. 
 
Most importantly - we couldn't have done it without YOU, loyal readers! Thank you for buying our books, reading our dumb listicles, coming to our events, supporting the indie bookstores that work with us - for all of 50 YEARS!! That's like, forever. 
 
Here's to 50 more.
 
To celebrate, we're putting some of our favorite SPD classics on sale, focusing on a different decade (or decades) every few weeks - at deep discounts.
 
So watch this space!

1970s & 80s
