Wi2023 Program

Monday, February 20, 2023  

4:30 pm to 5:30 pm

Network and Connect Metropolitan Ballroom, Level 3, Sheraton Grand Seattle

Whether this is your first ever Winter Institute or you have attended many times before, plan to join your colleagues for a brief orientation and the opportunity to meet old and new colleagues. Come in for a 20–30 minute presentation on how to get the most out of your Winter Institute experience, followed by an opportunity to meet other booksellers like you. The ballroom will be set in round tables devoted to affinity and subset groups so that you can meet booksellers with shared interests. You can connect with other Mission-Driven Stores, then head over to your LGBTQIA2S+ affinity group table before joining the conversation at the Pop-up Stores table! Join one table for the entire hour or hop from table to table to meet as many folks as you can.
