Let’s Go Make Some Books: A Tribute to Coffee House Press founder Allan Kornblum
Chris Fischbach, Tree Swenson, Anne Waldman, Karen Yamashita, Bao Phi
Allan Kornblum (1949 — 2014) was founded Toothpaste Press in 1972, which became Coffee House Press in 1984. He ran Coffee House as publisher until 2011, after which he served as an editor and consultant until he passed away in November 2014. Allan was a hugely important figure in the small press movement that helped pave the way for the emergence of the field of small to mid-sized nonprofit literary publishers. Panelists will pay tribute to him, and talk about his accomplishments and influence.
