Small Presses: 'Closest Equivalent to Your Local Farmer's Market'

Adam Roberts, a poet, educator, and post-graduate fellow at the Iowa Writers' Workshop, is doing a five part series about the value of verse in the 21st Century that is appearing in the Atlantic.  In the fourth part of that series he makes a wonderful statement comparing small presses to your local farmer's market.  He also ties that together with the Slow Food movement and the broader Slow Culture movement saying that all these things are a part of restoring to us a sense of time that our current world system strips away from us.  It's a wonderful series.  Here's the link to part four of the series, which contains links to the first three installments.
