For the approximately 500 booksellers attending the American Booksellers Association's Second Annual Winter Institute, business will mix with pleasure at an Author Reception on Thursday, February 1. At the conclusion of the first of two days of educational programming, booksellers can look forward to enjoying wine, beer, and hors d'oeuvres as they meet and greet more than 20 authors who will be on hand to autograph their books.

"We're very grateful to our Publisher Sponsors for providing such a rich roster of authors for this event," said Mark Nichols, director of Book Sense Marketing. "Booksellers will have the opportunity to speak with many of their past favorites who have new titles publishing soon, as well as a chance to meet some brand-new authors whose work offers exciting handselling opportunities."
