Introducing Management Book Club! This monthly meetup — part business book club and part consult group — is intended for bookstore managers and owners to discuss selected management books, share best practices in staff management, solicit advice on staff development, and grow their skills as leaders in our stores. Each month, ABA Director of Education Kim Hooyboer will lead discussions on that month’s selection. Booksellers are encouraged to attend the session for their region to allow for geographic cohorts, but are welcome to join whichever fits their schedule.
