Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The next edition of Bookselling This Week will arrive in your inbox late on Friday, January 24, with reports and photos from the American Booksellers Association’s Winter Institute 15 in Baltimore, which kicks off January 21. 

Next week’s edition will feature coverage of keynote presentations from Ryan Raffaelli, Rebecca Solnit, and Jennifer Finney Boylan; ABA’s Town Hall Meeting; and plenty of photos from the Welcome Reception and Anniversary Celebration, Evening Author Reception, and numerous networking events.

The issue of January 24 will be just the beginning of BTW’s Winter Institute 15 coverage, as we’ll be providing in-depth reporting on many education sessions in the weeks to follow. Bookselling This Week will return to its regular Wednesday schedule on January 29.

Booksellers who are not attending Winter Institute should keep an eye on BookWeb after the event, when dozens of educational session videos will be posted for booksellers to take advantage of. Bookselling This Week will share details in the coming weeks.

Please note that throughout the institute, and in the days leading up to it and following, many members of the ABA staff will have limited access to e-mail and may be delayed in their responses.

In addition, IndieCommerce users may experience a delay in receiving a reply to non-emergency support tickets that are submitted during Winter Institute. The IndieCommerce team will be closely monitoring tickets during Winter Institute, but staff obligations to booksellers at the event may delay replies.
