Independent bookstores have enjoyed a resurgence in recent years, serving as community gathering places in addition to retail hubs. While many of the books they sell come from one of the ‘big five’ publishers, titles from small, independent presses are increasingly carving out their own shelf space. These “indie” publishers often release works in a specific genre and offer promising authors an option somewhere between going big and going it alone. We talk with the founder of Relegation Books, a local independent press, and a D.C. native who recently published a novel set in the city under the imprint.
