Community educators are important bookstore allies. They work closely with children, and children need books! Making sure bookstores are carrying what teachers are recommending is essential to strengthening the relationship between the two. In this session, event planners and buyers will share how they have implemented and had success hosting Educator Nights. Booksellers will learn:

  • Why Educator Nights are important
  • How to build a bookstore’s list of educator contacts
  • The type of information educators are seeking out when they come to an in-store Educator Night

Important topics to discuss at these events

Kristen Gilligan, Tattered Cover Book Store (Denver, CO); Lizzy Nanney, Quail Ridge Books (Raleigh, NC); Rebekah Shoaf, Boogie Down Books (Bronx, NY); Heidi Wieland, Sourcebooks (Naperville, IL)
