American Library Association

The American Library Association Conference and Exhibition is the annual librarian literary love fest. Similar in scope to BEA, without the glitz, ALA plays a matchmaker role between librarians and the insistent publishing industry hoping to woo ordering dollars. As at BEA, Foreword maintains a large stand at ALA to mingle with its readership of librarians, independent publishers, and university presses.

Publishers who choose to send their titles to ALA with Foreword benefit from the increased exposure of appearing at a cooperative stand in the middle of the exhibit hall at our very busy booth at the world’s number one library show. Publishers can expect to have their titles in front of thousands of librarians. Books are organized by category and presented face out for ultimate exposure along with personal assistance and direction to your title by our staff. ALA is the place to solidify your publishing presence within the North American library market.
