FAPA at BookExpo 2016

On May 11-13, 2016, FAPA hosted a booth at BookExpo America in Chicago, displaying books submitted by FAPA authors and publishers. Seven FAPA members promoted the books to booksellers, retailers, librarians, publishers, distributors, and book marketing professionals at the largest book and author event in North America. The cost of this kind of national exposure – Priceless!


All books that were displayed in the FAPA booth at BEA were featured in this brochure and were given to visitors at the booth. Authors and publishers can also use these brochures for marketing purposes.
