Spuyten Duyvil Press, in Brooklyn, N.Y., has, for many years, published important books of innovative writing. In the last eight years, in particular, that publishing has exploded. The press is now going full steam full force full schedule full on with new & new kinds of books. The reviews of Spuyten Duyvil books have been stunning. In 2010, the New York Times named Spuyten Duyvil one of the important cultural institutions in the City. While Spuyten Duyvil has participated in the &NOW bookfair, this will be the first, per se, Spuyten Duyvil reading panel at &NOW. The readers are all, however, active &NOW participants.  This panel, hosted and moderated by Spuyten Duyvil publisher Tod Thilleman, will present five Spuyten Duyvil writers: Rebecca Goodman, Tom LaFarge, Laynie Brown, Joshua Corey, and Martin Nakell. Each will read from recent fiction.
