One of the features of our WNBA National Board meeting every year is highlighting our WNBA authors in a special display during the meeting. After the meeting, one copy of each author’s book is sent to the Boston Public Library, which archives WNBA authors and displays them on special occasions. This will certainly be a part of our 100th anniversary celebration in 2017, so we want to be sure everyone who has published a book will be represented.
This year the WNBA National Meeting takes place in Nashville on June 8-10. Please send a copy of your book(s) to the national meeting to arrive no later than Friday, June 7 (preferably earlier!) Books can be mailed directly to Mary Grey James, WNBA National Communications Chair, at 2200 Sharondale Dr., Nashville, TN 37215. OR please contact our Charlotte chapter at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange to have one of our board members take your books by car to Nashville when they go to the National Meeting. You will need to get your books to us by Monday, June 3, at the latest.
Mary Grey will be responsible for setting up the display. If you wish to sell your books at the meeting, you may do so, but you would need to arrange this in advance with our WNBA-Charlotte board members who will be there. Please note that authors themselves are responsible for collecting payment and return shipping. In other words, Mary Grey will ship one copy of each book to Boston, but authors who supply more than one copy are expected to sell and/or return all unsold copies themselves.
We hope to hear from all of our fabulous WNBA authors soon. Thanks in advance!
P.S. — if you are not certain about your current membership status, please contact Membership Chair Carolyn Abiad. You DO need to be a current dues-paid member in order to participate in this opportunity.
