Data from a recent study, commissioned by ABA, suggests that the localism movement is now at a transition point, ​and that indie booksellers, indie retailers, and our colleagues in the Shop Local/Local First movement ​have an opportunity to refocus their efforts and bring about real change in public policy and perception. During this session, ABA will report on the Civic Economics study "Amazon and Empty Storefronts: The Fiscal and Land Use Impact of Online Retail," and provide important resources and data to empower everyone connected with independent bookselling to communicate the “new” localism message to colleagues, customers, community members, elected officials, and the media.

The workshop on New Localism will run from 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

ABA's Open Forum, with lunch, will run from 12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
