Sullivan Street Press, leading green e-book publisher, will continue the REZ Reading Series at Odradeks Coffee House, 82-60 Austin Street, Kew Gardens, NY starting March 7th.
New York, NY (PRWEB) February 19, 2013
Sullivan Street Press leading green e-book publisher is pleased to announce the continuation of the beloved REZ Reading Series after a one year hiatus. The series will be hosted at Odradeks Coffee House located at 82-60 Austin Street, Kew Gardens, NY starting Thursday, March 7th from 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM.
Several years ago, Deborah Emin, founder of Sullivan Street Press, made a startling discovery about the Kew Gardens community. In a community where so many are passionate about reading, there wasn’t a single book store to be found in the area. This motivated Deborah to celebrate reading by inviting writers of all types to share their work with members of the community. The REZ Reading Series then found housing in various venues but none that were able to provide food and drink with the reading.
“Our ultimate goal is to be as imaginative and inventive as possible. Our community is filled with book lovers, poets, fiction writers, musicians and artists who want to share their interests with each other,” says Deborah Emin, Founder of Sullivan Street Press.
These events will now be held monthly, each event showcasing a specific theme. The first night will be a celebration of local writers. Future readings will be curated around one published writer inviting a circle of writing friends, published and unpublished.
Sullivan Street Press will be sponsoring these readings in order to fulfill part of its mission to create communities of story tellers and poets.
About Sullivan Street Press:
Founded 4 years ago, Sullivan Street Press entered the e-publishing domain to change the publishing paradigm. It recognized that for both financial and environmental reasons it was necessary to advocate for the rise of the e-book and the technology that makes all things digital possible. Responding to readers’ concerns, many of whom aren’t yet ready to commit to the e-book revolution, SSP began to have its books published in Print-on-Demand format on the Espresso Book Machine at McNally Jackson Books in New York City. Then it reached out to On Demand Books, the parent company of the Espresso Book Machine, to be included in their world wide system of Espresso Book Machines. In furtherance of the digital side of its publishing mission, the Scags Series is also available as in iPad app, powered by MAZ Digital.
