Hundreds of Bookselllers, Thousands of Books, One Great Community
The Heartland Fall Forum is a regional trade show that supports and celebrates independent bookselling. Hosted collaboratively by the Great Lakes Independent Booksellers Association and the Midwest Independent Booksellers Association, we represent 12 states and nearly 350 independent bookstores throughout the Greater Midwest, from the far reaches of North Dakota to Ohio, from Kansas to the tip of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and all states in between. Our booksellers form the backbone of literary culture throughout the Midwest. Please view our map to see the full breadth of our region.
We provide a rich environment for anyone allied to the book industry to meet, network, introduce authors, promote new titles, place orders, and learn crucial skills from one another.
We are a members-only show. Our attendees include booksellers, publishers, authors, wholesalers, distributors, sidelines vendors, librarians, teachers, media, book bloggers, and more. To find out more about our show, please contact us.
