Booksellers from all regions of the country are invited to visit the Hospitality Suite hosted by the Mountains & Plains Independent Booksellers Association at the ABA Winter Institute host hotel, the Salt Lake City Marriott Downtown.
The Hospitality Suite will be a place to relax for a bit, enjoy a cup of coffee, and take advantage of free Internet access. Booksellers will also be able to place orders for MPIBA's "Reading is Sexy" and "Read or Die" canvas messenger bags at wholesale prices.
"We're so excited to welcome the ABA and Wi4 to Salt Lake City and the heart of the Mountains and Plains Independent Booksellers Association's vast territory," said MPIBA President Andy Nettell of Arches Book Company and Back of Beyond Books in Moab, Utah. "Please take the time to visit our member stores, enjoy the unique western culture of Salt Lake City, and maybe even hit the slopes for some of our world famous snow."
The MPIBA Hospitality Suite will be located in the Solitude Room, adjacent to the Winter Institute registration area on the first floor of the Marriott. The suite will be open on Thursday and Friday, January 29 - 30, from 8:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. and on Saturday, January 31, from 8:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.
