‘New Philosopher’, ‘Womankind’ publishers to open specialist bookstore in Hobart
The publishers of New Philosopher and Womankind magazines, Antonia Case and Zan Boag, will open a specialist bookshop and tea atelier, called Poet 130, in Hobart in early July, reports the Mercury.
The store will stock titles focussed on ‘ideas and critical analysis’. The magazines will continue to be printed and distributed from Case and Boag’s bookstore Poet in Bangalow in Northern NSW.
Case told the Mercury that they plan to launch a philosophy festival in Hobart, and to establish a relationship with Fullers Bookshop. ‘We looked all over Australia for a place to set up,’ said Case. ‘It was either going to be here or Melbourne, but there’s a huge literary community here, and the university contributes a lot to society’.
