Congratulations to Book Culture, with three stores in New York City, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary next week. Birthday events include a panel discussion on Monday, March 27, on academic publishing over the past 20 years, featuring Jennifer Crewe, Fredric Nachbaur and Ellen Adler; and the "marquee event," a party on Friday, March 31, that will feature "drinks, brief speeches and good cheer!" Besides marking the bookstore's birthday, it celebrates the launch of Book Culture's New Directions section, featuring most of the publisher's catalogue. The store explained: "Over our 20 years at 536 West 112th Street, Book Culture has seen many changes in the bookselling and publishing world. In the time, NDP has remained one of our favorite presses."
