FAPA Offers More Marketing Opportunities for Members’ Books

FAPA strives to help members market and sell their books. We are offering two opportunities to do that at the Florida Library Association annual conference in Orlando on May 23-24, 2018.

FAPA will sponsor a booth in the Exhibit Hall for two days where you can sign up to have your books displayed to the 600+ attendees. You can also sign up for a one hour book signing table on either the 23rd or the 24th. There is a nominal fee associated with both of these opportunities that will help cover the costs of the program.

These opportunities are made available as a benefit to your FAPA membership.

# 1 - Display Your Book in the FAPA Booth

  • Members’ books can be displayed for $25 for the first book and $20 for each additional book.
  • Members may submit up to 5 books.
  • Space will be limited to 75 books for maximum exposure.
  • Books will not be sold, but for display only.
  • Each participating member may submit 50 business cards, bookmarks, or postcards that can be given to librarians.
