Why Would Librarians Buy Your Book—or Not?
Saturday, November 5, 2016 1:00PM - 3:00 PM
Sam Gary Library
2961 Roslyn St, Denver, CO 80238

We are librarians who buy hundreds of novels every year. What can make yours stand out? Which reviews do we read? Which self-published books do we buy? How important are the title, cover art, and blurbs? Do you really need a blog and a social-media presence? How important are previous sales and circulation? Learn about how librarians buy books and how libraries can help readers discover your work.

Alice Kober buys both print and e-book fiction for the Arapahoe Library District in Colorado. She has as spoken numerous times on adult fiction to librarians and enjoys introducing readers to new authors.
