Publishers! We’d like to put your authors in front of key Twin Cities booksellers this spring. Build buzz for new titles, forge connections, and help authors get acquainted with local booksellers.
How? We're hosting a Spring Forum with ABA on March 16, 2016 in Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN (exact location TBD). The first part of the day will be education for booksellers only; the second part of the day will be a social author event (est. 3:00 pm until 5:00 pm). We estimate 60 booksellers will be in attendance--owners, managers, and frontline booksellers.
The exact format is dependent on how many authors join us. If we have more than 10, we’d host a Moveable Feast style author/bookseller speed dating event. If fewer join us, we’ll give authors an opportunity to address the audience individually. Either way, we’ll wrap up the event with a book signing.
