Northwest Publishers Invited to Display at Midwest Shows

From our friends at MIPA

The Midwest Independent Publisher's Association (MIPA) invites all of our "cousins" to display books at the Midwest Booksellers Association (MBA) Trade Show. Booksellers from all over the Midwest will gather on September 29 and 30 in St. Paul to find books for their stores. MIPA will have a table at MBA (formerly called UMBA) and we invite you to display your book for all of the booksellers to see.

Books will be displayed face out and will be listed in our catalogue. The cost is $35 (additional titles, $25). We will need the following information about your book(s): title, author, publisher's address, isbn, price, format (paper or hard cover), category, year of publication and distributor(s) a short (75-100 words) description of your book(s), and your contact information in case we need more information.

THE DEADLINE FOR ENTERING BOOKS IS SEPTEMBER 8. Please send the above information about your book(s) and payment (made out to MIPA) to Pat Morris, MIPA, 1729 A Street, St. Paul, MN 55106. A .jpeg of the cover to be used in the catalogue should be sent to Books should be sent to arrive at the same address by September 15.


MIPA will also have an exhibit at Rain Taxi's Twin Cities Book Festival on Saturday, October 14. If you wish your book to be included in both shows, please include an extra $10.00 in your payment.

The Twin Cities Book Festival is held at the Minneapolis Community & Technical College in Minneapolis. Exhibit hours are 10 am-5 pm. This festival is open to the public.
