IPNE Engages Indie Booksellers at RI Conference

A total of 27 IPNE members exhibited 35 books at the annual conference of New England Independent Booksellers Assn. (NEIBA), held Sept. 30-Oct. 2 in Providence, RI. Several intrepid authors seized the opportunity to sign and give away books to the throngs on Oct. 1 - wise move! Other exhibits who staffed the booth were glad to be onsite to engage directly with attending bookstore staff and owners.

Our next event is the Association of RI Authors Expo in West Warwick, RI on Nov. 8, where we'll offer a 50% off membership special.
