Ibbetson Street Press to participate in the Jewish Book Festival in Nov., 2010

(Somerville, Mass.)

Doug Holder of the Ibbetson Street Press, Steve Glines of the Wilderness House Press, and Paul Steven Stone of the Blind Elephant Press, will run a seminar at the Jewish Community Centers of Greater Boston annual Jewish Book Fair in Nov. 2010. The panel will concern Print-On-Demand publishing and Self-Publishing. Print-On-Demand is a growing technology used by the publishing industry. It allows publishers and authors to print as few or as many books, etc... as the market demands. Instead of big print runs that often end up in the remainder pile; the publisher can publish just what he needs at any given point in time and see what develops later.

The Boston Jewish Book Fair is a series of literary events featuring an eclectic line-up of notable authors. Programs include panel discussions, readings and workshops by some of the best voices in Jewish literature. Some notable authors who have participated are Larry Tye " Satchel: The Life and Times of an American Legend,"
Elinor Lipman "The Family Man," Chris Bohjalian "Skeletons at the Feast," Zoe Heller "The Believers," and many others. Congressman Barney Frank will be participating this Fall. There is a new biography out on his life: Barney Frank: The Story of America's Only Left-Handed, Gay, Jewish Congressman by Stuart Weisberg.
