So I’m starting to look at logistics for my book-launch party in January. Today I figured out where the bar will be set up, how to keep people from hiding in the corner and not looking at the art, the music situation (a 5- or 6-hour iTunes playlist of cherry-picked old-school funk, punk rock, hip hop, 70s hard rock, and so on). My plan is to take the 10 best pics from the book and blow them up to poster size. Plus there’ll be copies of the book itself for purchase, though I don’t yet know how many copies to have on hand. Still lots to consider.
Would it be tacky to charge for drinks?
