In this post, Marketing Assistant Alex Beaton reveals that she can't stay away from Penn Press books, even when she goes out of town for the weekend.
Last weekend, I took a quick trip to DC and saw the awesome “Overdrive: L.A. Constructs the Future, 1940-1990” exhibit at the National Building Museum. Their collections and exhibits deal with architecture, landscapes, urban design, city planning, and the built environment, so I certainly expected to see some familiar spines on their shelves and I wasn’t disappointed. Since University Press Week was approaching, I was incredibly pleased to find tons of university press titles in the gift shop’s book section, including several Penn Press books (with a few facing forward!).
On a brief personal note, University Press Week is also my third week at Penn Press, and this is my first post here as the new marketing assistant. I think the work university presses do is incredibly important, and I’m beyond excited to take on this role.
