In the first of two meetups on how to organize and market multi-store events, bookseller speakers will focus on Independent Bookstore Day and how regional businesses put together bookstore crawls and passports.
At the fall regional trade shows, ABA will host an educational program that will offer an overview of the event and tips from booksellers who have successfully made the best of the national celebration.
“Independent Bookstore Day has become a really important day on the annual bookstore calendar, and it’s clear from the reports we’ve heard that it continues to grow,” said American Booksellers Association CEO Oren Teicher.
The American Booksellers Association, a national not-for-profit trade organization, works with booksellers and industry partners to ensure the success and profitability of independently owned book retailers, and to assist in expanding the community of the book.
Independent bookstores act as community anchors; they serve a unique role in promoting the open exchange of ideas, enriching the cultural life of communities, and creating economically vibrant neighborhoods.
