2019 HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE CATALOG SALES ARE CLOSED

The annual Holiday Gift Guide is an indispensable marketing program, generating strong sales for featured titles across the region. The gift catalog is designed with a keen eye to how stores use it to maximize the exposure of your books and products. We encourage you to consider promoting books and authors with diverse voices and experiences to our vast region of diverse readers.

 

Extensive Holiday Gift Guide promotion and its availability at indie bookstores will drive consumer traffic and sales this holiday season.
