Publisher Picks: Spring Picks from Multinational Publishers

  • 23-Jan-2024
  • 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM


Registration is closed

CIBA's Publisher Picks series is back with its Spring 2024 edition! We will bring you to the heart of publisher marketing discussions to discover the season's best bets – the books you might not (yet) know you need to stock, but will definitely be glad you have on hand. 

The goal of these sessions is to give booksellers an insider look at seasonal releases you need to be aware of, and why these books are going to have buzz this season. The focus is on titles that may be flying under the radar, not on the big-name bestsellers. You'll learn both the why and the how from publishers – why they predict these books will be talked about and how you can best put them in customers' hands. Publishers will be presenting highlights only, in a speed-dating format. 

Who should attend? Bookstore owners, managers and staff to find out upcoming publisher highlights and how to sell them.


  • Hachette Book Group
  • HarperCollins Canada
  • Penguin Random House Canada
  • Raincoast Books
  • Scholastic Canada
  • Simon & Schuster Canada

Attend live or watch the recording and you could win one of four publisher prizes! Email Nicola the special code (which will appear on screen sometime during the presentation) by Wednesday February 7 and you'll be entered into a draw to win one of the following prizes:
