Xi Author raises money for charitable foundation

COVID-19 has forced bookstores across the country to shut their doors for an undetermined length of time, and booksellers across the globe have their livelihoods threatened. Everything from iconic bookstores such as the Strand in New York City or Powell’s in Portland to many many smaller stores must close down operations in order to ride out this viral storm.  Jason Pinter, Xi ’03 (Wesleyan) is using his publishing company, POLIS BOOKS, to help. On June 16th, Polis Books will publish “LOCKDOWN: Stories of Terror, Crime, and Hope During a Pandemic,” edited by Nick Kolakowski and Steve Weddle.  All proceeds from sales of LOCKDOWN will go to BINC, the Book Industry Charitable Foundation, a nonprofit that assists booksellers in need. Learn more about the anthology here https://litreactor.com/news/exclusive-polis-books-announces-lockdown-stories-of-terror-crime-and-hope-during-a-pandemic-cha and pre-order here. https://www.indiebound.org/book/9781951709174
