Small Press Points

The name Holy Cow! Press (), complete with exclamation point, came to publisher Jim Perlman in a dream. Forty years ago that dream will hold a tribute event for the press with readings, a Q&A, and a book signing. Holy Cow! Press will also publish two new titles this fall: (October) by Minneapolis author Miriam Karmel and (November), a book of retold and illustrated Native American stories by Duluth author and artist Joan Henrik. Submissions are open year-round; send a query via e-mail or postal mail.
