Each year in December, Robin’s Bookstore, Philadelphia’s oldest independent bookstore, has a party for authors who have published in that year. It is one of their Ink programs, which celebrates writing and publishing by various groups. There are several reasons Robin’s Bookstore produces the Ink programs:


• Writers usually work in isolation. They think it is good to get writers together to talk, to network, and to celebrate.


• Writers do not usually have contact with readers. They think that contact between writers and the people who read the books is important. It personalizes literature. It gives a human face to those mythic individuals who write books. It allows for communication and inspiration for readers and beginning writers to meet those who have succeeded in publishing.
• It builds audience for writers to have public events.


• They like parties and hearing smart people talk about what they do. They try to be inclusive and invite everyone they know about.
