Additional ways to highlight your titles:


GENRE LOUNGES: You may select up to THREE genre lounges that are most related to your collection of titles. In these genre lounges, we will link directly to your exhibit booth. (We will automatically link your booth in our bookseller, librarian, and reviewer/blogger lounges, too!) Complete this form to select your three.


DIVERSE TITLES: In each genre lounge AND within the Amplifying Voices pavilion, we will be linking to a collection of titles by BIPOC and/or LGBTQ+ authors. These lists will also be featured in Edelweiss Community well beyond the event. If you’d like to add any of your titles to these robust collaborative lists (no additional fee, unlimited entries), click on the name of the list below and then simply click “Add Title(s)+” to search for and add your title. (If you are not already a member of the Bookfest Community, you will be prompted to join.)


WORKPLACE CULTURE: There will also be a Workplace Culture booth where publishers may feature their titles related to workplace culture. If you’d like to add any of your relevant titles to this booth to be featured, you can do so here: Workplace Culture Books
