LIBRIS Business Insurance has announced the winners of its giveaway contest, held last month at BookExpo America in New York City.

Dick Hermans, owner of Oblong Books & Music, with one store each in Millerton and Rhinebeck, New York, was the winner of a $100 American Express gift card. Hermans, a long-time LIBRIS policyholder, said he was delighted to receive the card.

Philip Rafshoon, owner of Outwrite Bookstore & Coffeehouse in Atlanta, was the winner of the Flip SlideHD pocket video recorder. “This is perfect timing,” Rafshoon said. “I’m going on vacation next week, and now I can take videos of my trip.” Rafshoon also said that he plans to take videos at in-store and off-site events.

The winners were chosen at random from booksellers who stopped by the LIBRIS table in the ABA Booksellers Lounge at BEA.

The LIBRIS insurance program was created by the ABA to provide affordable, comprehensive business insurance expressly for independent booksellers. For more information or to request a quote, call (888) 694-8585 or visit
