Ask the Bookseller: Organizing and Categorizing Your Stock

  • 06-Feb-2024
  • 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM


Registration is closed

History, Science Fiction, Mystery, Cooking, Romance – there are so many possible ways to organize, categorize, and display the books in your store. Whether you’re new to bookselling or a seasoned professional, it pays to take a step back and wonder if the status quo is working for your customers and your business. Which books should you display at the front of the store? How can you encourage your customers to discover diverse voices? Will a particular book sell better if it is reclassified into another section? How many subcategories should you use to break down your fiction titles? Our panel of booksellers will share their insights, discoveries, successes, and failures with you.

All members welcome!
