Support SPD!

 

SPD's new Gofundme to help us pay staff, rent and publishers during the pandemic is here:

Help Small Press Distribution Survive!

However you can also donate on this page and become a member in the process--the funds go to the same place.

SPD is the only 501(c)3 nonprofit literary book wholesaler and online bookseller in the country. We take risks on books by exciting new writers, enabling their work to develop an audience and gain recognition. Unlike any other book distributor we select our publishers based on what their books add to our culture, not because of how much money those books might make. We are unique in the US book industry and need your help to sustain this important effort!

Please donate and help us continue to connect writers and readers.

Thank you to our 2018/2019 Friends and Funders!
