One more thank you to all the volunteers who worked Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to make our booth look so good on September 29 and 30 at the regional trade show. Thank you too to Larry, Greg, Brian, and the rest of the volunteers and staff at the Pacific Northwest Bookstore Association for putting on such a fabulous fall event. We so enjoyed the two nights of desserts, talking to so many book people, and see what a robust independent publishing and bookselling community we have in the Pacific Northwest.
As reported in Publishers Weekly, attendance is climbing at regional book fairs as independent booksellers enjoy an increasing share of the market. At PNBA, there was talk of new stores opening and a general feeling of optimism about the book business.
This trade show marks Book Publishers Northwest’s last event in 2018. We’ll continue to move forward as a news website for local independent publishers and authors. Send us listings of your events in the greater Northwest region.
