Report: our evening with BENJI KNEWMAN

Last Thursday we had a great evening with Agnese Kleina, editor-in-chief of Benji Knewman, an independent magazine from Riga that only published two issues. She he told us that she sees the magazine as a place where everybody can be imperfect. There was a story about Jazeps Garancs, a 86 year old man from Riga who talks about his love life and girlfriends in the first issue and Agnese showed us some sneak previews of the upcoming third issue.

Then we did a Q&A and talked about the influence of Apartmento, Hello Mr. and The Happy Reader on the magazine, the business side of publishing independently, how the reaction to the title is in Latvia and why it's published bilingual. We found out that a large part of the people in the store were Latvian. Afterwards Agnese signed some copies of Benji Knewman. Thanks for coming over Agnese and thanks to Nikos Doulos for taking some pictures.
