ABA member booksellers who are interested in meeting with publishers to discuss issues of common interest and mutual concern at Bookseller/Publisher Focus Groups during BookExpo America must sign up by next Friday, May 3.
The Focus Groups at BEA were organized by the American Booksellers Association in response to the success of similar meetings at Winter Institute 8, which were praised by both booksellers and publishers.
Booksellers who sign up for the focus groups at BEA by May 3 will be randomly assigned to a specific publisher for one of seven time slots listed below. An e-mail with assignments will be sent from ABA’s Mark Nichols during the week of May 13.
Participation in the focus groups is limited to two booksellers per ABA member company. A unique e-mail address is required for each bookseller. Requests for specific publishers and/or time slots cannot be accommodated, and booksellers are asked not to change appointments during the show.
