As A Book Apart heads into its fourth year, we are looking to expand our publishing program and grow our audience. But to do that we need help. We are looking for a Managing Director to join our team and help us grow efficiently while keeping our sights on the high quality texts that our readers expect of us. Is that you? Join us!
This Friday, November 30, 2012, celebrate the Sixth Annual International Blue Beanie Day for web standards with us. Profess your love of an open web by adding a blue beanie to your avatar, tweeting a tweet or two, and by sharing a self-portrait—with a blue cap, of course—to the Sixth International Blue Beanie Day 2012 Flickr pool. Visit zeldman.com/bbd for more information and instructions.
Update: We raised $6,600 for the Red Cross! Thanks to everyone who participated. As we've watched friends and neighbors dig out from Hurricane Sandy, the A Book Apart team has been moved by the enormous effort and the goodwill of the many volunteers and city employees working to get the area back on its feet. In an effort to contribute to that recovery, A Book Apart will be donating 15% of sales on Monday, November 5th, to the Red Cross. All orders placed before midnight EST will qualify.
We have decided to delay the release of Karen McGrane's Content Strategy for Mobile while our friends and readers recover from the storm. A Book Apart's New York staff is safe and sound; our hearts go out to those affected. We urge friends from afar to donate to the Red Cross (text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10).
