New Books Reception

Seeking Author/Exhibitors!!!

We will once again feature a New Books Reception at the upcoming ESS meeting in Philadelphia.  The New Books Reception will take place in the Book Exhibit area on Friday, February 24, from 3:00 to 4:00 PM. This event gives authors of new books (those published in the past year) an opportunity to display and talk informally about their work. Places to display books will be scattered throughout the Book Exhibit area.  Coffee and snacks will be served.  Anyone who is registered for the annual meeting will be able to wander through and enjoy the opportunity to browse and chat with authors.

To help defray the cost, we are asking that authors wishing to reserve an assigned table at the New Books Reception contribute $50.00.   Many authors have asked their publishers to pay that fee for them, which is fine with us.  We also ask that authors encourage their publishers to help sponsor this new event over and above providing “your” $50 fee.  The usual contribution/sponsorship from publishers is $100 (they will directly benefit from poster and program visibility as a sponsor).

Please contact Jennifer McAdam at to reserve space to display your book. On-site sales of your publications are authorized (bring a couple of hard copies and some order forms – and a Sharpie for book signing!) Registration for tables closes February 1  — but remember, space is limited and will be assigned on a first-come first-serve basis. Further details will be sent out to those participating
