We had a record number of stores apply for Heartland scholarships this year and we are thrilled to grant travel scholarships to 20 booksellers!
Thank you to the generous scholarships funded by BINC and Macmillan as well as our scholarship sponsors for their direct support of the Heartland scholarship fund--Fujii, Bookshop, HarperCollins, and Scholastic. In addition, Heartland is able to fund even more scholarships due to the generosity of all our sponsors, so thank you to all.
"As independent booksellers, we occupy a very unique space in the marketplace. The opportunity that Heartland Fall Forum allows for us to come together, check-in, and discover what's working with fellow booksellers in our region is vital to the continued growth or our community." --Michelle Shaver, Carmichael’s Bookstore
Thank you sponsors!
