40×40@40

As part of looking back and mapping what the amazing feats of the SPT community have been since 1974, we asked 40 writers to contribute one short text each celebrating—describing, anatomizing, remembering an encounter with, meditating on, shouting out to—a single book published by a small press between 1974 and 2014.

We’re interested in having writers reflect on a book that palpably shifted their perspective, startled their aesthetics, changed their life; a book they always recommend to others; a book that they would place in a time capsule. The Forty by Forty at Forty (40×40@40) inaugurates the section of our website called Traffic Report, which is enlivening a space for criticism, critique and conversation.

The 40×40@40 list will, hopefully, sketch a 40-part haphazard history of independent publishing and ardent reading across these four decades.

Please consider becoming a member of SPT today! Members get into all readings free. Non-member admission is $6-10. No one turned away for lack of funds.
