Library-Author Partnerships: How To Work Together To Find Readers

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Join a panel of librarians, who together have amassed decades of experience working with horror authors and readers, to learn how to work with your local library- public or academic. Learn how to get your book into your library's collection, how you can help with programming, and most importantly, how NOT to behave. The panel will also discuss, in detail, the brand new HWA Summer Scares initiative aimed at connecting horror books with more readers across all age levels and how every HWA author can participate, even if your title is not one of the nine official selections.
