Skylight Books is a fine local bookstore in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles, specializing in literary fiction, cinema, and LA-related titles. This weekend they revive the Revolution-era practice of the salon (what a great idea!), and the topic of conversation just happens to be the catalogue of David R. Godine, Publisher.

To wit, 'Yearning for witty repartee and intellectual stimulation? How about wine and hors d'oeuvres? Come join us for our new monthly series, Skylight Salon, where our staff shares their faves from small presses and independent publishers. A modern-day mixer for the literary minded. This month: Monica highlights the David R. Godine, Inc., a sweet little publishing house out of Boston, MA that puts only the best fiction and nonfiction that wouldn't get published otherwise. Home of Black Sparrow Books as well as Verba Mundi, this a diverse publisher with a superb list of beautifully bound books with intellectual weight.'
