Book Exhibit at the SSAWW Conference

Dear SSAWW colleagues,

            If you are presenting at the upcoming conference in Denver in October, but your publisher will not be at the book exhibit, you may still be able to have your BOOK on hand by working with Scholar’s Choice, which will be preparing an exhibit drawing from multiple academic presses.

            Our contact person at Scholar’s Choice is Mary Lynn Howe. Here’s her advice on arranging to have your recent book included:

“Any authors with newer publications should contact their publishers ASAP and let them know they’ll be speaking & would like to see their book included in our exhibit. . . . [W]e don’t choose what gets included; it is up to the publishers to choose to send them.”

            Using a copy of the conference program, Scholar’s Choice has already contacted a number of presses directly, so it’s possible your publisher may already be making plans to participate. But it might not hurt to check in with the marketing department at your press(es).

            Here’s Ms. Howe’s email to pass along to your publisher’s representative:

            mlh@scholarschoice.com

            Hope to see you—and your publications!—in Denver at the book exhibit.

            Deb Clarke, Maria Sanchez and Sarah Robbins, Conference Coordinators
