This began as a collection of posts provided to the no longer Bargain Book News for all booksellers from SIBA, with love. But it is switching to a blog for the industry with news that we hope is valuable for the industry at large, from SIBA, with love.

Publisher Picks Summer Reading for Kids a Big Success!

Posted By Linda-Marie Barrett, Monday, April 15, 2019

Last week’s B3! Webinar “Publisher Picks: Summer Reading for Kids” was a big success, notable for the diversity of titles presented, and the range of reading levels, from board books to YA. Booksellers from across SIBA territory attended, and many who couldn’t asked for the Edelweiss collection of titles and video presentation. Michelle Cavalier of Cavalier House Books was thrilled with the selection, commenting, “I love that the focus here was on small presses!! Also, love that one of the books highlighted was a bilingual title - I feel like we are seeing more and more of these every season and they work SO WELL for us. Not only do they speak to our mission of inclusivity and making all feel welcome in our shop but our teacher and librarian partners go crazy for them as there is a definite need for these in our schools! Honestly, I appreciate the diversity of the entire list, just wanted to highlight that fact. :)” A big thank you to presenters Nadia Almahdi of Little Bee Books, John D’Esposito of IPG, Catherine Onder of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and Becky Monds of HarperCollins Christian Publishing.

Would you like to be part of a future Publisher Picks session with SIBA Booksellers?

Posted By Linda-Marie Barrett, Wednesday, March 13, 2019

Would you like to be part of a future Publisher Picks session with SIBA Booksellers?

SIBA’s new Publisher Picks program brings publishers and booksellers together outside of store visits and the Discovery Show. The opportunity to present will be particularly beneficial to SIBA member publishers whose reps may not get to visit all 150 SIBA member stores. And what’s more--it’s free!


What's involved: Every other month SIBA hosts sessions on Zoom where publishers, editors, and reps promote their favorite new titles to booksellers. Booksellers will earn B3! Points (which translate into dollars to pay for SIBA dues and events) for attending, get to know the territory’s reps, and discover some new titles to add to their store shelves. Buyers and frontline booksellers are encouraged to attend.

 

Would you like to present your titles at a future session? Please email lindamarie@sibaweb.com. We have openings for the following sessions:

 

JUNE - Fall Fiction

AUGUST - Small Presses Present Fall & Winter Lists

OCTOBER - Sidelines for Holiday Sales & Beyond
