THE MARCH MADNESS BOOKSELLER SERIES (MMBS)
Where every bookseller is a champion!
SIBA in the Springtime (SITS) takes our programming to a new level of participation and engagement by member booksellers. May we present our March Madness Bookseller Series! Fourteen bookstores across our territory will host one-day education and networking gatherings running from 10am-3pm with an author luncheon. Events are within 2-3 hours driving distance from a majority of our member stores, and take place over a three-week period in March. Booksellers may register for multiple events, as each host store’s education is tailored to share their best practices and innovations. We’re so excited to offer this range of programming to our booksellers, and are opening up registration now so folks can save the date!
