Booksellers can sign up now for speed dating with editors at BookExpo, where they will meet on Friday, May 29, with groups of editors to talk about publishers’ new titles. Booksellers must sign up by Friday, March 27.
Booksellers can select their top two genres, and ABA will try to make sure booksellers sit with editors who publish books in those categories. The categories booksellers can choose from are as follows: Adult Fiction, Mystery, Sci-fi/Fantasy, Romance, Narrative Nonfiction, History/Politics, Religion/Philosophy, Cooking, Poetry, Works in Translation, Art/Photography/Design, Graphic Novels, Children’s Picture Books, Middle Grade, and Young Adult.
Booksellers will meet with these editors from different publishers in one of two shifts (10:15 a.m.–11:15 a.m. or 11:15 a.m.–12:15 p.m.), and will rotate to three tables for meetings of 19 minutes each.
Sign up here by March 27 for Editors Speed Dating at BookExpo. Registration for Meet the Editors and Publicists Speed Dating will open on April 1.
