Andrew Laties’s panel at Digital Book World Conference: “Indie Bookstores Still Count”

January 28, 2011

From a review of the panel discussion “Indie Bookstores Still Count: What We Can Do For Publishers, and What Publishers Can Do For Us” at the latest Digital Book World conference:

“By far the best panel I attended to day was entitled, ‘Indie Bookstores Still Count: What We Can Do For Publishers, and What Publishers Can Do For Us.’ . . . Andy Laties, of the Eric Carl Museum Bookshop, advocates working with publishers, with book buyers, and also with a non profit as part of his business model for successful indie bookstore. He’s primarily a children’s book seller, and reaches out the hospitals, schools, museums, and other not for profits specifically meant for children. His biggest opportunities come from targeting specific demographic associated with a nonprofit in a high traffic area where books can be sold – i.e. a museum bookshop. Individuals make a donation when making a sale – the customer knows that and will elect to buy at that location instead of ordering the same book online.”
