Tips on Selling at Printers Row from Cynthia Clampitt

 

Greater Midwest Foodways Alliance is dedicated to celebrating, exploring and preserving unique food traditions and their cultural contexts in the American Midwest. In this effort, we wish to support those who write books documenting our culinary heritage.

We will have a representative table at the Printers Row Lit Fest for a second year.

On a first-come first-serve basis, we have available to our members an eight-foot table and two chairs to accommodate two authors for a two-hour shift. You may sell your books, though collection and payment of any sales taxes are your responsibility.

On Saturday and Sunday, we have time slots for two people for:
