Publishers: Submit Virtual Author Events and Digital Event Kits

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Dear Publisher Partners,

We here at ABA hope you are all hanging in there during these uncertain times. Many of you have reached out and asked how you and your authors can help the indie channel while so many events and tours have been cancelled and many stores are in various stages of closing or modifying their hours. At this time of social distancing, it's more important than ever that stores maintain their connection to their customers and community when they can't be in the same physical space.

If you know your authors are doing creative virtual events, story times, discussions, etc. please let us know by filling out this webform. Likewise, please fill out the form if you have downloadable digital event kits with activities that stores can share with their customers.

At the bottom of the page, please find a downloadable PDF of Action Items for Authors to share with publicists and authors.

Is this a virtual author reading, story time, or discussion that bookstores can link to? Or a digital event kit that stores can download and share with their customers?
