Book Buyers Summit

Monday & Tuesday January 23 & 24, 2023

Beekman Arms

Rhinebeck, NY

We will be joined by four publishers: W.W. Norton, Penguin Random House, Hachette, and HarperCollins. Each publisher is there to get buyer input on just a few titles in an upcoming season, each making their own unique presentations.  

This is also an opportunity to spend time with your fellow book buyers. A large part of our time together will be in group discussion on challenges, ideas, tips, and discussing books. That agenda will be created by the participants in the retreat.

 There is a nominal registration fee. Hotel information will be shared soon.
