Children's Institute 7 logo

Registration is open [6] 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 [7] (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 [8], City of Asylum [9], White Whale Bookstore [10], and Classic Lines Bookstore [11].

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 [12], The Tiny Bookstore [13], and Penguin Bookshop [14].

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 in 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 [6].
