Haiku North America Bookfair
The 2011 Haiku North America bookfair will take place in the Fidalgo Room of the Northwest Rooms at Seattle Center, which is our conference site. Books from some of the best small presses that publish haiku in English will be available, and sales will be facilitated by Park Place Books (www.parkplacebookskirkland.com). For the first time, we’ll be able to accept credit cards for payment, thanks to Park Place Books. If you have haiku-related books to sell, whether one title or multiple titles, please reserve your free table space beforehand.

Reserving Space at the Bookfair
To reserve a space in the bookfair, please email Tracy Koretsky at tracykoretsky at tracykoretsky.com by July 20, 2011. Leave your name (or your press’s name) and the estimated number of books you plan to bring for sale (please tell us just the number of books; we don’t need to know the titles). You will be assigned a table or part of a shared table. We have plenty of table space (no wall displays) so if you have just one or a few books for sale, we can always accommodate your books at the last minute, even if you don’t reserve a space beforehand, but reserving beforehand will help us plan better. Thank you!
Important: To help bookfair volunteers, we require vendors to provide a list of books to be sold and prices (in U.S. dollars). Please download the form to the right and fill it out before you arrive (do not email it to us, but bring it with your books). Printed copies of the form will also be available at the bookfair room when you arrive, but we encourage you to fill it out beforehand. Please also make sure each book has the price marked on it, or that you provide a price list to be displayed with your books. Thank you!
There is no charge for the tables used by bookfair exhibitors. If you wish to make a donation to HNA to help with our bookfair expenses, though, please let us know.
Bookfair Details and Conditions
We will assign your books to a table or partial table. Each table will have one or two chairs. The room is not set up for hanging posters. Table-top posters are allowed. Vendors are responsible for bringing or shipping their books to and from Seattle, which includes all customs paperwork, if applicable. If you want to ship your books prior to the conference, please contact Tracy Koretsky at tracykoretsky at tracykoretsky.com. HNA 2011 organizers are not responsible for shipping books. Exhibitors are responsible for their display materials, and for assembling, dismantling, and packing their own displays. Takedown must be finished on Saturday, August 6, either by 7:00 pm (when the bookfair closes) or between 10:30 pm and 12:00 midnight (final takedown time).
At all bookfair hours, we will provide at least one HNA volunteer to staff the bookfair area. However, sales will be available only during posted sales hours (see above), when additional staff will be provided by Park Place Books. Payments to vendors will be provided on Saturday, August 6, if possible, or shortly after the conference (by postal mail). The bookfair space will be locked and secure except during the open browsing and sales periods.
