Quirk Heads to BEA: Say Hi, Meet Authors, Get Swag

Posted by Eric Smith

Hey Quirk fans!

Next week, we're packing up a bunch of books, swag, and authors (using only the finest packaging materials for them), and heading to Book Expo America for three days of hanging out with booksellers, book bloggers, book publishers, book readers… book lovers from all across the country. You get the idea. And we can't wait! 

In addition to selling lots of books and dishing out free posters, ARCs, and totesbags, we've got some fun events going on through out the convention. And we want you to join us in (and out!) of our booth (#2848!) at BEA for a whole bunch of fun activities.
