Den oberoende bokmarknadens framtid i USA


 
Torsdag 12/6 kl. 19.00 gästas Söderbokhandeln av Ramsey Kanaan, grundare av AK Press och idag förläggare på PM Press. I ett samtal med Gabriel Kuhn, (författare till bland annat Life Under the Jolly Roger, Sober Living) berättar Kanaan om den oberoende bokmarknadens framtid i USA.

Samtalet sker på engelska.
Fri entré.
Vi bjuder på förfriskningar och enkelt tilltugg som vanligt.

Välkomna!

The publishing world has undergone major changes in recent years. New digital technologies have transformed reading habits, the distribution of literature is increasingly handled by multinational corporations, and once famous booksellers have closed their stores. It would appear as if small independent publishers were hit hardest by these developments. But are they?

Ramsey Kanaan founded AK Press, today the world's largest distributor of anarchist books, in 1987. Twenty years later, he started PM Press, one of the currently most influential independent political publishers in the US. Join Ramsey for a discussion about the importance of independent publishing and the ways to keep it alive.

 

 

Kvällen arrangeras i samarbete med DISTRo44 och med stöd av ABF Sthlm.
