Summer Socials

New York City Social: 

City, boroughs and suburbs, join us for a relaxing night at Community Bookstore in Brooklyn on Monday, July 18 at 6:30 PM. We will have some special author guests, and of course, dozens and dozens and dozens of booksellers.

Featuring authors Tara Clancy and Colson Whitehead

Tara Clancy's writing has appeared in the New York Times, the Paris Review Daily, the New York Times Magazine, and The Rumpus. She has told several stories on The Moth Radio Hour and has hosted their live shows in New York City and throughout the country. Her stories have also been featured on NPR's Snap Judgment, Risk!, and The Story Collider, among other programs. Tara was born and raised in Queens and now lives in Manhattan with her wife and two sons. This is her first book.
Colson Whitehead is the New York Times bestselling author of The Noble Hustle, Zone One, Sag Harbor, The Intuitionist, John Henry Days, Apex Hides the Hurt, and one collection of essays,The Colossus of New York. A Pulitzer Prize finalist, a recipient of a Whiting Writers' Award and a MacArthur Fellowship, he lives in New York City.
Fifth-generation New Yorker, third-generation bartender, and first-generation author Tara Clancy was raised in three wildly divergent homes: a converted boat shed in working class Queens, a geriatric commune of feisty, Brooklyn-born Italians, and a sprawling Hamptons estate she visited every other weekend. This childhood triptych comes to life in The Clancys of Queens, an electric, one-of-a-kind memoir.
Cora is a slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia. Life is hellish for all slaves, but Cora is an outcast even among her fellow Africans, and she is coming into womanhood; even greater pain awaits. Caesar, a recent arrival from Virginia, tells her of the Underground Railroad and they plot their escape.

Welcome to NAIBA! We're a regional trade association of locally-owned, independent booksellers, and the authors and publishers who enjoy working with them and promoting their books through the independent bookstore. We provide the community, education, awareness, and tools for independent bookstores to succeed. Our region covers New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Washington DC, northern Virginia and West Virginia.

To achieve these goals, NAIBA hosts an annual conference in the Fall to educate and enlighten booksellers and publishers; creates opportunities throughout the year for booksellers to visit with each other and exchange ideas and have problems solved; communicates weekly with our members on industry events, issues, and creative ideas.

"Our membership is worth every penny for all the great services provided to booksellers. Appreciate all your hard work."
