The American Booksellers Association has decided that, in light of the coronavirus outbreak, ABA team members will not attend the remaining 2020 Spring Forums occurring around the country throughout March and April.
As the forums are held in conjunction with regional bookseller association events, booksellers are encouraged to check with their regional association to learn the status of their local event. ABA is also working with each regional association to offer a virtual forum where possible. Watch Bookselling This Week for updates.
Booksellers who are seeking more information and resources about the coronavirus outbreak are encouraged to visit a new resource page BookWeb.org that details information about upcoming ABA events, general information about the outbreak, resources for retailers, and bookseller-specific resources. Booksellers are invited to contact ABA at any time with questions or concerns.
