Wednesday, May 27, 2020 2:30 PM to 5:00 PM EDT
Main Stage

ABA member bookstore owners, managers, and event coordinators will meet with publicists from several publishers among the participating companies. During the timed “dates,” booksellers have the chance to promote their stores and discover what publicists look for when planning author tours. Representatives from the same store will rotate together to assigned publicists’ tables. Stores will be scheduled for seven rotations in total; details will be sent via email to participating stores a week or so before BookExpo. Pre-registration via ABA is required and opens on April 1; registration closes May 1.
