Small Press Distribution

Farley’s East Nonprofit of the Month: Small Press Distribution

Small Press Distribution (SPD) forges a pathway to the book marketplace for independently published literary voices often excluded from and underrepresented in the culture at large. Reaching underserved readers with writing from a broad coalition of authors contributes to the vibrancy of our communities, and helps literature to prosper as an evolving and vital artform. Through book distribution, events, and public advocacy, SPD provides small presses and their authors with the reliable and professional network they need.

Throughout the month of December, if you order a book from their website and enter the promo code “FARLEYS” you will get free shipping, and support local writers and distributors!

Additionally, every Wednesday night (4th, 11th, and 18th) we’ll have a book sale with SPD here at East!

Wednesday, December 11th from 6-8pm will be their Happy Hour + a reading with Dogpark Collective, a new press here in Oakland. 20% of sales during the Happy Hour will be donated to SPD.

Emily Cheng

Farley’s SF Artist of the Month: Emily Cheng

“I’m an artist and engineer native to the bay area. In 2014 I drew my first entangled portrait, inspired by the web of faces and emotions that weave through my dreams. I improvise graphite drawings, not having a sense of what I want the end result to be, but letting the lines intersect and define the negative and positive spaces. As an artist my goal is to create pieces that naturally draw the viewer in and encourage them to take a closer look.”
