New this year, MiPA will exhibit member titles at the Heartland Fall Forum, held in St. Louis October 12-14. The Heartland Fall Forum is an annual conference and expo for independent bookstores throughout the Midwest, organized by the Midwest Independent Booksellers Association (MIBA) and the Great Lakes Independent Booksellers Association (GLIBA). The bookseller associations represent 12 states and nearly 350 independent bookstores, from the far reaches of North Dakota to Ohio, from Kansas to the tip of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and all states in between.
Publishers in the Midwest can opt into MiPA’s 2022 title catalog for $25 per title. The catalog will be available at MiPA’s booth, in hard copy and electronically, and will feature retail ordering information. Following the Heartland Fall Forum, MiPA will distribute the catalog to each registered bookseller, and also distribute a version with individual purchase links to the public on our website and via our email list.
Publishers can opt to upgrade their listings to include one physical copy to be displayed at MiPA’s booth in the exhibit hall ($75; limited spaces available!).
