Closed: CALL FOR AUTHORS

 

FallCon 2019, the MPIBA Trade Show & Conference is the perfect place to introduce authors to hundreds of booksellers from across our vast 12-state region. At our show, all authors present their books directly to booksellers — as featured speakers, on panels, or at meal and speed-dating events.

 

Our Call for Authors has closed. If you missed the deadline to pitch an author, please send a note to Heather Duncan, Executive Director, and we’re happy to add your author to our waiting list.
