The North American Conference on British Studies/Southern Conference on British Studies has again arranged with The Scholar’s Choice to manage the combined book exhibit for our annual meeting taking place November 6-8 in Louisville, Kentucky. It will be possible for your recently-published books to be included in their display.  Please refer to the guidelines below:

“Any members interested in having their book displayed at the upcoming NACBS/SCBS meeting should contact their publisher as soon as possible.  Please keep in mind that the publishers pay a fee to display with The Scholar’s Choice and may not have the marketing budget necessary to honor all requests, particularly for older titles. Reservations from the publishers will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis so reserving early is highly recommended.  Please note that The Scholar’s Choice displays on behalf of the publishers and ALL requests must come from them, not the author.  The person who handles reservations at The Scholar’s Choice is Debby Pitts. Your publisher may reach her at djpitts@scholarschoice.com or at 585-262-2048 x.108.”
