Jill Hendrix Greetings from your SIBA President!

Please join me in congratulating Wanda on several big personal milestones in her life: she just reach the big 6-0; her first grandbaby, Vera Jane, was born June 10th; this will be her 25th SIBA and our 40th anniversary. It’s quite a year for you, Wanda – many congratulations!

Wanda Jewell and Vera Jane Carolina

I’ve already registered for our 40th anniversary SIBA trade show in Raleigh. Have you? Authors already booked for the show include Karin Slaughter, Alex Kava, Homer Hickam, Tom Angleberger, Augusten Burroughs, with many more to come. We really, really, REALLY want at least one bookseller from every SIBA member store to attend. If you are having trouble making that happen please let Wanda know your obstacles and she’ll do her creative best to help you out.

I hope your A/C’s are staying strong and that Southern beach reads are flying out the door. If you’re wondering how to capitalize on the current adult coloring craze, check out Fiction Addiction’s upcoming Coloring, Cocktails and Conversation event and feel free to copy our idea for your own store.

Here’s hoping you have a great Independents Week!


Jill Hendrix, SIBA President and owner of Fiction Addiction
