The Future of Reader Meet Writer
It is SIBA's goal to continue Reader Meet Writer after a two week break from June 15-July 1. Half of the books that have been featured on Reader Meet Writer have made the Southern Indie Bestseller List the week following their appearance. That bodes well for the program if that keeps up, and we need to hear from stores who are participating. These virtual events have been well received by booksellers, publishers, and authors alike.
Beginning in July, SIBA is going to offer two virtual events a week, one in the afternoon on Tuesdays and in the evenings on Thursdays. We have confirmed Kristen Harmel on July 21st, and Odie Lindsey on August 6th. We will fill in the remaining dates over the next few weeks and keep the calendar updated at the Reader Meet Writer site for booksellers.
All SIBA member bookstores are invited to participate, and join this list of participating bookstores. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the list.
