Our busy May has segued into a busy June and this weekend five WLU Press employees will be jetting off to Salt Lake City to mingle with other university press professionals and learn as much as we can cram into one weekend about new trends in publishing, to share what each of us is doing well and swap tips about challenges. The AAUP conference is a great weekend, and I’m sure we’ll come back buzzing and raring to go. Thankfully, for me, anyway, it’s my last trip for a while. I’m looking forward to staying home and working at the office by day, enjoying the summer evenings by night.
The end of June brings the American Library Association conference in Washington, and Lisa Quinn, an acquisitions editor with WLUP, will be staffing our booth. Libraries are major buyers of our books and we look forward to showing off our new titles to the thousands of conference attendees.
Last but certainly not least, please stop by the launch of Covering Niagara: Studies in Local Popular Culture if you can. It is being held on Monday, June 21 at 3pm at Pond Inlet, Brock University, St. Catharines. Editors Joan Nicks and Barry Keith Grant will be on hand to sign books, which can be purchased at the event. Refreshments will be served and there is a cash bar. We hope you can make it.
