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.

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

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

SIBA is offering a new program to bring publishers and booksellers together outside of store visits and the Discovery Show: Bi-Monthly Publisher Picks via Zoom!  These sessions will be particularly beneficial to SIBA member publishers whose reps may not get to visit all 150 SIBA member stores.

 

What's involved: Every other month SIBA hosts sessions where publishers and their editors and reps can 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.


SIBA just hosted Small Presses Present their Spring & Summer Lists this week.  Michael Reynolds, Editor in chief of independent publisher, Europa Editions, Carin Siegfried, the Mid-Atlantic field sales representative at Macmillan, Emily Midkiff, editorial assistant and marketing director at Month9Books, Meg Reid, Director of Hub City Press, and Lynn York, publisher of Blair presented spring and summer titles to an audience of booksellers that included bookstore owners, buyers, and frontline booksellers. 


Would you like to present your titles at a future session? Please email lindamarie@sibaweb.com. Space is limited for each session. Our 2019 schedule, including the theme for each presentation, is below:


APR - Summer Reading for Kids

JUN - Fall Fiction

AUG - Small Presses Present Fall & Winter Lists

OCT - Sidelines for Holiday Sales & Beyond
