Haymarket Books seeks to drive a wedge into the risk-averse world of corporate book publishing. In the brief time since it started publishing, Haymarket, a project of the nonprofit Center for Economic Research and Social Change, has published more than 250 titles. Haymarket was recently listed as one of 10 publishers named by In These Times as being a key member of “The Progressive Media Network and Its Allies.” In 2009, Library Journal’s editor Barbara Hoffert called Haymarket her “top find of the convention” in a report on “Great Discoveries” at BookExpo America, and they had their first New York Times best-seller, with Amy Goodman’s Breaking the Sound Barrier.
In addition to great music, drink, conversation, and presentations by a number of Haymarkert authors, there will be a great display of titles — many on sale for $10 each. Help celebrate Haymarket's first 10 years and to lay the groundwork to sustain and expand its work for the next decade.
