Sign Up For Volunteer Slots Or Author Giveaway At Booth 15

We are currently signing up volunteers to work our exhibit at the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Tradeshow. All volunteers will receive a badge allowing entrance to the show (it is closed to the general public). This does include the Friday education day.

Sign up to be a volunteer or do a give-away here.  Further information will be sent to you upon receiving notification that you’ve signed up. Do NOT deliver, ship, or drop books at  the Hotel Murano front desk or other entrances for author signings or giveaways.  Anyone signing up to give away large quantities of books must deliver them in person between September 28-30 to Booth 15. Further directions will be sent upon signing up for an author give away.
