The American Booksellers Association is encouraging bookstore and provisional members who are interested in attending the Fourth Annual Winter Institute (Wi4) to register as soon as possible as the event is now almost booked to capacity. Once Wi4 registration reaches its limit of 500 participants, a waiting list will be started. The Winter Institute, which is sponsored by Ingram Book Company/Ingram Publisher Services, will be held at the Salt Lake Marriott Downtown in Salt Lake City, Utah, from Thursday, January 29, to Sunday, February 1.
A limited number of rooms are still available at the Marriott at the special Wi4 rate of $122 per night for Wednesday, January 28, through Sunday, February 1. All hotel reservations must be made through the hotel's special Winter Institute reservations page. (If booksellers encounter problems booking a room for their entire stay in Salt Lake, they should send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the dates needed.)
