The first full day of educational programming at ABA's Fourth Annual Winter Institute (Wi4), sponsored by Ingram Book Company/Ingram Publisher Services, will culminate in a celebratory reception featuring 38 authors, including both well-known indie favorites and exciting new voices.

Thanks to the generosity of ABA's Publisher Partners all Winter Institute participants are invited to the reception where booksellers will mingle and authors will autograph their latest or forthcoming titles. Light refreshments will be served at the event, which will be held from 6:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. on Friday, January 30.

"We are extremely grateful to our Publisher Partners for once again allowing us to bring booksellers and authors together at the Winter Institute," said ABA Senior Director of Publisher Initiatives Mark Nichols. "The Authors Reception is always an exciting event for all participants -- it provides booksellers with a chance to meet many of the authors whose books they enjoy handselling as well as some new talent and gives authors an opportunity to express their appreciation to indie booksellers."
