BPNW members received a letter this summer about volunteering to staff the BPNW booth at the exhibition. Volunteers will receive a tradeshow badge that allows them into all educational sessions and the exhibition (meals must be purchased separately). This annual event is an excellent way for small publishers and local authors to network with neighborhood bookstores and regional library systems.
