On Wednesday, September 12, the American Booksellers Association will announce the complete program for the 14th annual Winter Institute (Wi14), to take place January 22–25, 2019, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Wi14 registration will open the following week, on Monday, September 17.
Booksellers are encouraged to review the schedule when beginning to book travel. On top of three days of education sessions and keynote speakers, there is a full day of programming slated for Tuesday, January 22, ahead of the opening reception, that booksellers may wish to arrive early for.
In addition, ABA is looking into organizing a post-Wi14 ski trip on Saturday, January 26; booksellers who are interested in attending should e-mail ABA CFO Robyn DesHotel.
Watch Bookselling This Week for updates about Winter Institute 14. Booksellers with questions about Wi14 should e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wi14 scholarship winners will be announced later this month. Scholarships are provided with the support of sponsoring publishers large and small. There are a limited number of sponsorship opportunities remaining; interested publishers should contact ABA Director of Development and Publisher Relations Matthew Zoni.
