BIPOC Quarterly Forum Scheduled for April 13 [3]

Throughout the month of April, the American Booksellers Association is offering opportunities for booksellers to come together virtually for discussion. Booksellers can visit the at-a-glance calendar [4] to see all upcoming events.

The BIPOC Quarterly Forum will be held on Tuesday, April 13, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. ET. 

BIPOC — Black, Indigenous, or People of Color — booksellers and bookstore owners are invited to join a call to share ideas for future sessions; needs for ABA services, programming, and general support; and questions with ABA CEO Allison Hill, ABA COO Joy Dallangera-Sanger, ABA Senior Membership Manager Daniel O’Brien, IndieCommerce Senior Manager Geetha Nathan, and Meetings and Planning Coordinator Maria Rodriguez.

The ABA team will attend from 6:00 p.m. to 6:45 p.m., and the BIPOC Forum will continue until 7:30 p.m. ET. BIPOC allies and booksellers who do not identify as BIPOC should not plan to attend.

Booksellers interested in attending should use the sign-up form at the bottom of the ABA Meetups page [5] to join the BIPOC Meetups mailing list (if you’ve already signed up in 2021, you do not need to sign up again).
