One of the squares near my house – Central Square – has been undergoing some serious revisions as of late. They’re not all good revisions; they’re major changes and emptying out of local businesses and staples. I lived there almost two years ago, and it no longer feels like home the way it used to. One of the most dreary parts about Central now are all of the empty sites with “For Lease” signs hanging in the windows. So when I read Karen the Small Press Librarian‘s announcement of a traveling bookstore that’s planning to pop-up in a recently closed Borders in Pittsburgh, I thought, “Aha!” Just what Central Square needs. But that’s not where the goodness of this story ends.
The bookstore, Fleeting Pages, seeks books by indie presses and self-publishers from all over, and even have a Submit section on their website. Get more information on the project and how you can get involved here.
