We love librarians! And they love indie publishers. This is one of our favorite book shows - and it shows! Join us in Warwick, Rhode Island this year for what everyone expects to be another dynamic NELA conference!
Since librarians delight in finding uncommon and regional books to meet their patrons' needs, they tend to be attracted to small presses.
The New England Library Association show is the one show where you'll find the most regional librarians, staff, and trustees gathered together in one place. They're especially interested in books from New England authors and publishers and books with other connections to our region as well as general titles.
IPNE members enjoy discounted exhibit rate starting at $55; there is a discount for multiple titles. You must be an IPNE member to exhibit at this event; JOIN HERE (partner organizations get a special IPNE membership rate).
