Everyone at IPNE is excited to host an exhibit at the Boston Book Festival (BBF) for our 8th year! What's even more terrific is that IPNE can represent small publishers and author-publishers at this important event, even though self-publishers are not allowed as solo exhibitors.
Because the BBF is so well attended by a concentrated crowd of book lovers, it creates a special opportunity for independent publishers to interact with the public and attract new readers. And remember: space is limited, and this show will fill up fast.
NOTE: IPNE exhibits at the major book shows will be curated. Please read Curation Guidelines and make sure you complete the Curation Checklist before you register.
The Boston Book Festival, now in its 9th year (2017), is the largest literary event in New England. It takes place in Copley Square, Boston every October, with tent booths ringing the square and author and publisher events in the Boston Public Library and surrounding buildings. Well-known authors give readings and talks, and the mood is festive!
IPNE's Boston Book Festival 2017 exhibit is a curated show for members only. If you're not a member, first join IPNE as a publisher or vendor member. Then, register for BBF and we will send information on where to send an additional copies (5) copies of your book for sale at the festival.
If your book is not accepted, your BBF registration fees will be refunded in full. Read Curation Guidelines here.
NOTE: Authors & publishers may not remain in the booth or alter the display in any way. This policy allows customers to view and buy your books more easily.
