Kiva & Junction Books

Posted in Kiva

Since 2007, I have been a lender with Kiva, an organization that attempts to better the lives of people by giving them opportunities through micro-loans. Even though it is a simple thing to do on my part, it has been quite a rewarding experience. Because I believe in this organization and cause, I have created a Junction Books Kiva team and at the end of each publishing season I will make a Kiva loan on behalf of Junction Books. I encourage you to check out Kiva and, if you are so inclined, to please sign up and join the Junction Books Kiva team. Cheers

Posted in Chapbook

Junction Books is pleased to announce the first chapbook to be published since 2004: Production 1060: The Oz Monologues by Adrienne Weiss. We hope to have the chapbook available by the end of June, but are unsure exactly how much time it will take for production since we are printing and binding it ourselves. The print-run for the chapbook – 10 hardcovers and 41 softcovers – will inaugurate the new Junction Books imprint, Editions 10:41. The chapbook will also be made available for a limited time as a print-on-demand title if the original print-run sells out
