The deadline for nominations for the Joe Drabyak Frontline Fellowship to Winter Institute 8 is Friday, October 12.

For the third year, Workman Publishing is sponsoring the fellowship to honor Joe Drabyak, Chester County Book Company’s master bookseller and a past president of the New Atlantic Independent Booksellers Association, who died of cancer in 2010.  The fellowship provides airfare, lodging, and the meal fee for one bookseller to attend Winter Institute 8 in Kansas City, Missouri, from February 23 - 25, 2013.

Booksellers, publishers, and sales representatives are encouraged to nominate booksellers for the fellowship. Nominations should include the following:

  • Bookseller’s full name and complete contact information.
  • Store where the bookseller is employed. Both full-time and part-time booksellers can be nominated.
  • A brief letter of recommendation explaining why the bookseller is being nominated for the fellowship.

Nominations should be e-mailed to [email protected].

The winner, to be chosen by Workman and ABA staff, will be announced in early November.
