Curbside in the Red Eye

By Naomi Huffman

Curbside Splendor Victor Giron

"A publishing company was never part of the plan. The name belonged to a college band. The book that started it all began as a simple writing exercise. Whether you credit an entrepreneurial spirit, love of literature or too many nights of drinking and sharing ideas, Curbside Splendor was born of deep passion."

On Thursday, Curbside Splendor was featured at RedEye.com in an article that described how we got to this place. Thanks to Veronica Wilson for her tireless conversations with founder Victor David Giron, Editor-in-Chief Jacob Knabb, and Managing Editor Naomi Huffman.
