Proud publishers

Self-published authors and small print publishers at the Buffalo Small Press Book Fair speak to the changes in the publishing industry that have allowed authors to bypass major publishing houses in order to get their work out to the world. The Buffalo Small Press Book Fair is an annual event held on Porter Avenue in the Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum that brings together local writers, artists and booksellers. The event, which started eight years ago, recently expanded to two days, and might require a new venue as attendance continues to rise. By Jeff Pawlak and Brittney Singletary
