Image of the Day: Indies at AAUP

The Association of American University Presses held its annual meeting in Austin, Tex., this week and there was notable energy and collaboration between university presses and indie bookstores, facilitated in part by the ABA and the presence of indie booksellers and university press champions like Jonathon Welch, owner of Talking Leaves, Buffalo, N.Y., who took time away from his Cape Cod vacation to attend. The varied and diverse program included panels such as Cover Design Within Reach, The Challenges and Opportunities of Working with Authors of Creative Work, and Preparing for University Press Week [Nov. 6-11] and Indies First.

After the packed panel on Successful Partnerships with Independent Bookstores, chaired by Gianna LaMorte (University of Texas Press): (l.-r.) Amanda Sharp (University of Georgia Press), Elizabeth Jordan (BookPeople, Austin, Tex.), Emily Hamilton (University of Minnesota Press) and Jeff Deutsch (Seminary Co-op Bookstores, Chicago, Ill.).
