Fan Page Friday

Strebor Books - Strebor Books is dedicated to publishing a wide diversity of both fiction and non-fiction books. We are committed to finding and developing the careers of cutting-edge authors who take risks with our stories. A personal vision of New York Times Bestselling Author Zane, Strebor examines every aspect and characteristic of the human spirit. From contemporary romance to science fiction, from mystery to erotica, from paranormal to historical, from political to religious, no genre is overlooked amongst the continuously expanding catalog of titles. Zane has the power of discernment when it comes to ascertaining "the next big thing" as proven with her own success; going from a grassroots publisher to running an imprint of Simon and Schuster in less than five years.

Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers at the New York Public Library - The Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers is an international fellowship for creative writers, professors, scholars and visual artists who fuel their projects using resources specific to the New York Public Library and to New York City. The center also has series of public programs that showcase fellows' work and highlight collections of the library that inspire creativity and research.

The New York Review of Books - The New York Review of Books began during the long news blackout of the New York publishing strike in 1963. A group of friends decided to create a new kind of magazine—one in which the most interesting and lively minds they could find would discuss current books and issues in depth, and with all the authority and knowledge they possessed. The result was what The New Yorker recently called "the best first issue of any magazine ever." Launched with no capital except the support of book publishers' advertisements, The New York Review won instant and astonished acclaim with issues that included articles by W. H. Auden, Hannah Arendt, Edmund Wilson, Susan Sontag, Norman Mailer, Gore Vidal, Saul Bellow, Robert Lowell, Truman Capote, William Styron, and Mary McCarthy. The publication of the magazine was "of more cultural import than the opening of Lincoln Center," wrote The New Statesman.

Since then, The New York Review has continued to pose the central issues of American life and culture. By using writers who are themselves a major force in world literature and thought, the Review has explained the latest discoveries in science, reviewed major art exhibits, and has brought a remarkable freshness, clarity, and vision to current politics and the living dramas of the past. No wonder that it has established itself as the "preeminent intellectual newspaper in English" (The New Statesman).

The Reader's Catalog - As readers, you are passionate about the written word, and with that in mind we are pleased to present this collaboration between two independent publishers, The New York Review of Books and The Little Bookroom.

The gifts and products you'll find interspersed with the books throughout are chosen for their appeal to those for whom the written word is a beloved preoccupation. You'll find handmade journals and the legendary Moleskine notebooks, pencils and pens, items decorated with the alphabet and literary quotations, library and desk accessories, and much more—many made by artisans, craftspeople, small family-owned companies—the hand-dipped chocolate makers again.

We hope you'll agree that The Reader's Catalog is a good companion to the reading life.

Longreads - Longreads is dedicated to helping people find and share the best long-form stories. Great for reading on the iPad, iPhone, Kindle and Instapaper.

Tin House - We're a literary magazine, book publisher, and writers workshop bent on breaking out of the staid and elitist bent. 

"While New York publishers star-search for this year's single lollipop best-seller, Tin House recalls what literature can give one honest reader. In its magazine and book publication, Tin House turns up much of what's still righteous and nervy in American writing.

Our country is unknowingly starved for works that show real human texture, works that admit to both the stress of our times and the depth of our essential spirit.

In Portland, Oregon, there stands a splendid concept-pagoda. Tin House is offering a roof–despite the toxins of commerce–shelter meant to keep our language alive.

IndieBound - IndieBound is about supporting independent bookstores and other businesses, and celebrating what makes them unique. It's about reaching out, it's about raising awareness, and it's about taking pride in your community.
