Champion of small presses
One of our fine local papers has a good story this week about Bill Henderson, who is about to receive the lifetime achievement award from the National Book Critics Circle. Henderson is the founder of The Pushcart Press. He lives part-time in Sedgwick, Maine, and runs the tiny Pushcart Bookshop there in the summer. I haven't been there yet, but I hope to visit this summer. I hear good things about it from both customers and bookish friends.
