Schools serve as an established audience for children’s authors. In this session, booksellers will learn how to develop relationships with schools and libraries, build pre-order sales, and encourage publicists and authors to put their store at the top of a publisher’s list for sending visiting authors to their community.

Drew Sieplinga, Wild Rumpus Books (Minneapolis, MN); Heather Hebert, Children's Book World (Haverford, PA); Kim Krug, Monkey See, Monkey Do (Clarence, NY); Emily Hall, Main Street Books (St.Charles, MO); Moderated by Sara Grochowski, McLean & Eakin Booksellers (Petoskey, MI)
