Writer’s Guild Updates

The 2nd Annual Writer’s Guild membership drive was a success!

Meetings are held the second Thursday of every month at 6pm at the Joplin Library. There is a $10 yearly fee to join.

Here at ABB, we have had over 200 book signings by local authors. We support them and the Writer’s Guild. We are already lining up local and regional authors for book signings this Spring.

Alyse Foley, manager here at ABB, will be giving a short talk on book signings at the Writer’s Guild meeting on Thursday, January 10, 2019, at 6pm. She has eleven years experience at ABB scheduling and preparing for book signings.

For more info, call us at 417-781-1720.

Note: Local authors that have books a ABB, please come by the store sometime in January and check on your books. If we don’t hear from you, they will be removed.
