Heartland Fall Forum - in Pictures

The end of last week was the Midwest Independent Booksellers Association's regional trade show, Heartland Fall Forum, and as it was right here in our backyard. This year was the first year that MIBA partnered with the Great Lakes Independent Booksellers Association (GLIBA) to hold one trade show for the twelve-state region, making it a pretty huge event.

We spent all day Friday in the exhibit hall, talking to booksellers, librarians, fellow publishers, and even the occasional student. It was a great day, and we enjoyed every minute of it. The Midwest is truly full of passionate book lovers, and we're happy to be a part of it.

So, without further ado, here are some of the pictures we took of the exhibit floor and our table.

Our table

We brought all of our spring ARCs

And gave away copies of our new releases, The Ice Castle and Knives on the Cutting Edge.

Our catalogs

The exhibit hall opens!

Anne Sawyer-Aitch stopped by for awhile and brought this amazing Pink Tiger puppet. He was a big hit with everyone!

Another big hit: we gave out Riesen candies. The fun part was that we came up with hundreds of reasons to read, and taped them to the candy. 

Now, it's on to the Twin Cities Book Festival this weekend! This one is open to the public, so if you're in the area, stop by the State Fairgrounds and find some great new books!
