October 11-13, 2017
The Heartland Fall Forum is an indispensable experience created specifically for independent booksellers. It will energize and inspire you and your staff, as well as offer plenty of practical applications — education, networking, galley circulation, meeting authors, and placing orders on the trade show floor.
Large, medium, or small; general or children’s; urban, suburban, or rural — it doesn’t matter what type of store you are. Exhibitors look forward to meeting you! The higher our attendance is, the stronger independent bookselling becomes. We welcome a variety of attendees, including authors, wholesalers, distributors, sidelines vendors, librarians, teachers, media, book bloggers, and more, to join us in our mission of strengthening and celebrating literary culture in the Midwest. Attendance is free for current MIBA and GLIBA members.
Applications are due August 11
