Northwest indie booksellers recently convened in Portland for a day of education sponsored by the American Booksellers Association, followed by an afternoon of “research” and “professional development.” Otherwise known as an author party.
The Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association invited a dozen Northwest authors (and one bonus illustrator) to lay out their wares, new and forthcoming titles they hope will stick in the heads of booksellers who will then stick them in the hands of customers.
NWBL gathered up samples of all titles featured at the “Authors on the Map” reception, and one lucky follower can pretend to be a fact-finding bookseller and bring home his or her own bag of a dozen crispy-fresh books to sample!
