Hey Clay!

By Harriet Staff


Hey Bay Area! Today is “Say Hey to Clay Day” at Small Press Distribution.

If you’re local, stop by SPD (1341 Seventh Street in Berkeley) any time from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM to say good-bye to Clay Banes.

If you haven’t met Clay, you probably know him from his weekly “SPD RECOMMENDS” e-newsletters that documented bestselling small press titles as they shipped from SPD’s warehouse. Clay’s e-newsletters also featured up-and-coming small presses in the subject lines and placed featured publisher’s books on sale, with special sale codes within the content of the e-newsletters.

Clay leaves his position as Sales and Marketing Manage at Small Press Distribution after five years of promoting small press poetry (and fiction), publishers, and writers across the country. As they say at SPD…

We will be celebrating the reign of Clay Banes as SPD’s Sales & Marketing Manager from 2008 until 2013. Happily for Clay but sadly for us, Clay is leaving SPD and he is also leaving the Bay Area for his native Massachusetts. Please stop by to say “hey!” next Wednesday on Clay’s actual last day at SPD on 1341 7th Street in Berkeley. Food and drinks will be served all day and if you are in the mood to buy a book you can take 30% off the usual price.

Thank you Clay!
