Book Awards Celebration
Drayage: $1.00 per book
Quantity: 200 comp books or galleys
At Heartland's Book Awards Celebration, we celebrate the winners of Midwest Booksellers Choice Awards; Great Lakes, Great Reads; and the Voice of the Heartland. It's a cocktail event with a festive appeal. There will be light food and a cash bar, with the the Great Hall set in rounds. An emcee will introduce all the award-winning authors, keeping it under one hour, and after the remarks, we will host a book signing.
Please ask your author to prepare acceptance remarks limited to 5 minutes. Successful remarks include thanks for publishers, booksellers, and family/friends; stories about the book; anecdotes from visits to indie bookstores; etc. We'll have a raised podium and a microphone at the front of the room for speakers' use.
Authors pre-sign their books before the event if they're available to do so; the time after the celebration is for further personalization. The book room will be staffed starting at 12:00 pm on Wed, Oct 3. Please ask your author to finish signing before 4:00 pm, allowing staff enough time to set up books before the event begins.
