American Library Assocation (ALA) Annual Conference for Self-Published Books


The American Library Association annual conference attracts librarians from all levels of management, from all types of libraries, from across the country. It serves as a meeting place for leadership, a place to learn, a place to network and as a forum to exchange ideas on the multitude of issues affecting libraries. Attendance is estimated at 25,000!

Co-op book shelf displays allow you to secure valuable, face-out exposure for your book on an exclusive shelf with 4 other Outskirts Press titles.  A representative will be on-hand to personally answer questions about your book. Outskirts Press will provide the necessary copies of the book and all the necessary contact information for both the author and publisher, so interested parties can make further contact, during or after the fair. All inquiries Outskirts Press receives about your book will be forwarded directly to you for personal follow-up.

The registration deadline for the 2009 ALA conference is May 31st.
