Fall 2015 Report

WHEW! WHAT A FALL! After a dynamic 5th Annual Conference on Sept. 25-26, then hobnobbing with bookstore buyers at the New England Independent Booksellers show on Oct. 8, we presented 45 member authors & publishers at the Oct. 24 Boston Book Festival, which attracted thousands of avid readers to Boston's historic Copley Square. At the BBF, a record 26 authors signed books, and IPNE member J Bruce Jones recorded 7 author interviews. 

Close on the heels of the BBF, Tordis Ilg Isselhardt and 13 IPNE member volunteers worked on behalf of more than 35 member exhibitors at a very successful New England Library Association conference on Oct. 26-28. "NELA attendance was dramatically up this year," said Isselhardt, at about 600 book-loving librarians. 

More than 300 Fall 2015 Catalogs with accompanying show-specific inserts were distributed at all three events. Conference attendees received a direct mailing of the catalog courtesy of IPNE sponsor, HF Group, headed by board member and treasurer, Paul Parisi.

Conference attendees may now access several of the 2015 Annual Conference speaker presentations. If the one you are looking for is missing, please request it.
