Events

The WBRA organizes three annual book fairs for booksellers, librarians, trade, and gift retailers. Two of these will be held in-person, and a third will be held virtually.

Book Fairs

Thank you to everyone who attended our virtual fall 2022 Book Fair. Our next book fair will take place in-person this coming winter, February 13 to 15, 2023. Check your email or visit here for registration and schedule details

At our in-person fairs there is an open exhibit area where you can view samples and collect the latest catalogues and reader copies from publishers.

We encourage buyers and retailers to book appointments with the reps so you can get a personalized presentation of the coming season’s hot new titles and trends. Also you can take advantage of the book fair specials offered by the publishers.

At each book fair there is a social events which allows the reps to socialize with their accounts, and booksellers to meet others in the trade.

In recent fairs we have had two author receptions. We have a keynote author saying a few words about his/her current work, and we invite other authors and local publishing houses to mix and mingle with reps, booksellers and other publishers in the industry. The perfect way to unwind over a cocktail and appys!
