NECBA Meeting

May 2

How are books made and how can we handsell them? Join NECBA at Candlewick HQ on May 2nd! Candlewick will present a morning intensive on how books are made, from start to finish. After a lunch break, NECBA will discuss overcoming handselling biases in a conversation led by the Windows & Mirrors team. Send your frontline booksellers or anybody interested in how books are made and sold.
