Librarians love books and often buy books for entire districts with rare returns. When a librarian likes a book in your series, or on your topic, they're eager to learn of the next, and the next. In this 60-minute session, you'll learn how to sell to libraries. You'll also learn how to use librarians as resources for new covers, new titles/subtitles, etc. Join this session if you'd like to discover how and when to pitch librarians, all about national marketing programs and library shows, and how to provide what librarians need to bring them to YES.
