Registration is now open to booksellers and publishers interested in signing up for either a full-day or half-day bookstore tour at the seventh ABC Children’s Institute (Ci7), taking place June 26–28 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh–Green Tree in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The tours will be held on Wednesday, June 26, prior to Ci7’s First-Timer Orientation & Mentor-Mentee Meetup and the Welcome Reception and Costume Party at the DoubleTree Hotel.

The Downtown Pittsburgh Full-day Bookstore Tour, which costs $30 per person, will depart from the hotel at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday and will stop at Spark Books, City of Asylum, White Whale Bookstore, and Classic Lines Bookstore.

The North Pittsburgh Half-day Bookstore Tour, which costs $20 per person, departs from the hotel at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday and will stop at Riverstone Books, The Tiny Bookstore, and Penguin Bookshop.

Booksellers and publishers may begin boarding the buses at the DoubleTree Hotel 15 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time; both buses will return to the hotel by 4:15 p.m. While the full-day tour conflicts with Wednesday morning’s quidditch game, booksellers participating or watching the game will have enough time to attend the afternoon half-day tour if they wish.

Registration for the tours will close when they reach capacity; space is limited and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Register now.
