This coming summer, starting on the 20th of June, twenty or more Zero Books authors from around the world are going to give book readings in the local branches of their public libraries. The idea is to work against the notion that summer reading is always "escapist," to propose that escaping from Capitalist Realism and dusty planets is a legitimate summertime goal, to celebrate printed books, and to celebrate public libraries.
As a critical theory imprint Zero Books relies on quiet spaces and thoughtful reflection. Put more simply, we rely on libraries.
