Inspiring Literary Citizenship

    Tuesday, January 23, 2018 -
    10:40am to 11:40am
    Room: 
    Mississippi

    This session will focus on ways booksellers can give back to both their literary and local communities by participating on boards of literary associations, serving as judges for book awards, volunteering with the chamber of commerce, or even running for city and/or local government positions, all while still being active in the day-to-day life of the bookstore.

    Melanie McNair, Malaprop's Bookstore/Cafe (Asheville, NC); Jeremy Garber, Powell's Books (Portland, OR); Richard Howorth, Square Books (Oxford, MS); Moderated by Pete Mulvihill, Green Apple Books (San Francisco, CA)
