Thursday, June 27, 2019 3:10 PM to 4:40 PM EDT

This new event replaces the broad Bookseller Focus Groups with a series of 15 more intimate meetings between participating publishing sponsors and booksellers, thereby providing opportunities to more productively address issues of concern one-on-one. Participating sponsors and bookstores will meet one-on-one with each other (one sponsor/one bookstore per table) for five minutes each in a reverse speed dating format where booksellers will travel from sponsor to sponsor as participating publishers and distributors remain stationed at their tables. Tables 1-7 and 20-25 will be located in the Social Promenade. Tables 8-13 will be located in Mellon. Tables 14-19 will be located in Thompson.
