A&M attended a great event this past weekend. Accompanied by the proprietress of Grandpa’s Barn (our favorite independent book store) A&M attended the Heartland Fall Forum for independent book sellers in both the Midwest and Great Lakes areas.
As a member of the Great Lakes Independent Booksellers Association (or GLIBA as it is affectionately called), A&M was able to join with publishers, distributors, bookstore owners, authors, and all the people dedicated to the preservation of independent book stores in a fun, informative, extremely well-organized, and inspiring celebration of books and readers. Congratulations to all involved for an excellent event!
The Northern California Independent Booksellers Association just finished up their annual event yesterday in San Francisco. (They post the San Francisco Chronicle’s list of best selling books every week.) It’s on the list for next year, as is SIBA, the Southern Independent Booksellers Association Discover Show scheduled for September in Savannah. Maybe we’ll see you there!
