Small Press Distribution mourns the passing of Etel Adnan, a poet, artist, and icon in our community. Etel’s vision inspired countless writers and readers, and the vitality of her work will continue to do so. We join the community in mourning this loss and celebrating her brilliant life.

Our hearts go out to those who have carried and championed Etel's artwork and poetry, especially The Post-Apollo Press. It's been an honor for us here at SPD to help distribute her books for more than 40 years. Her brilliant legacy will continue to grow.

“Do what your inner soul tells you to do, regardless of any money or success it will bring you.” - Etel Adnan
