This week I was privileged to attend the LDS Booksellers Association Convention or LDSBA with a couple other bloggers including I Am A Reader Not A Writer, LDSWBR and Tristi Pinkston. This is a closed event to the public and it’s the first year they have let bloggers enter, so it was very exciting to see all of the new books and merchandise being offered to bookstores and buyers.
We were invited to a speed dating session with vendors, an author dinner with Frank Cole, Heather Ostler, Carla Kelly and Jenni James and finally a day in the exhibit hall. Among the vendors were Cedar Fort Books, Deseret Book, Covenant Communications, Brigham Distributing and many others. We caught a sneak peek of some of the new advanced reading copies and picked up swag which we are sharing with our blog readers.
To see my live feed of all the photos, and people I met, go to twitter #LDSBA, our facebook page and Heather Gardner Photography’s facebook page. Thanks so much to the organizers of LDSBA for inviting us! We hope to be back next year!
