New York, NY
Turned off by the Book Expo America’s steep entry prices, a group of independent New York-based editors and writers decided to take their publications to the street in 2005.
Driving a fruit-stand-like vehicle called the Truckazine, organizers sold publications by Bomb, Cabinet, Broken Pencil, Relay and Stay free.
Over two days, Truckazine wandered through Manhattan then Brooklyn with a final back-to-books reading by poets and novelists in Williamsburg’s McCarren Park.
