Booksellers in town for BookExpo America are invited to open houses at 13 ABA member stores on Monday evening, May 24. Visiting booksellers can look forward to a warm reception and some light refreshments. The Open House festivities are co-sponsored by the participating businesses, the American Booksellers Association, and BookExpo America.

Here's a list of the participating bookstores, times for each open house, and nearest cross streets and subway lines. Thanks to BEA, here also is a downloadable map highlighting the store locations.
