Throughout the month of April, the American Booksellers Association is offering opportunities for booksellers to come together virtually for discussion. Booksellers can visit the at-a-glance calendar to see all upcoming events.
The BIPOC Quarterly Forum will be held on Tuesday, April 13, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. ET.
BIPOC — Black, Indigenous, or People of Color — booksellers and bookstore owners are invited to join a call to share ideas for future sessions; needs for ABA services, programming, and general support; and questions with ABA CEO Allison Hill, ABA COO Joy Dallangera-Sanger, ABA Senior Membership Manager Daniel O’Brien, IndieCommerce Senior Manager Geetha Nathan, and Meetings and Planning Coordinator Maria Rodriguez.
The ABA team will attend from 6:00 p.m. to 6:45 p.m., and the BIPOC Forum will continue until 7:30 p.m. ET. BIPOC allies and booksellers who do not identify as BIPOC should not plan to attend.
Booksellers interested in attending should use the sign-up form at the bottom of the ABA Meetups page to join the BIPOC Meetups mailing list (if you’ve already signed up in 2021, you do not need to sign up again).
