Small Press Expo 2023
I find myself able to attend the Small Press Expo 2023 (Saturday only — but given how there were more people that wanted rooms than available in the hotel, that’s maybe easier to handle this year). It’s held September 9-10 in Bethesda, Maryland.
I’m most interested in the debut books, as a convention is a terrific place to find material new to me. Some of the biggest name books in that category — but there are tons more — are:
- the long-anticipated Keith Knight autobiographical story I Was A Teenage Michael Jackson Impersonator
- Cam Marshall’s Matchmaker, collecting the queer webcomic
- Roaming by Jillian Tamaki and Mariko Tamaki (although I thought at one point I’d seen that they are there Sunday only — I hope not, as their publisher Drawn & Quarterly doesn’t seem to be exhibiting so I’m assuming one gets the book directly from the creators)
Hope to see you there!
