More on Books at KGB

No one jumped at the chance to volunteer for Mobile Libris and so we have to seek out other options if we want to continue to have authors’ books sold at Fantastic Fiction at KGB.  Colleen Lindsay had an excellent idea in a comment on Ellen Datlow’s blog that we should reach out to local booksellers.  Brilliant.  Why didn’t I think of that?

This morning I contacted Shakespeare & Co., St, Marks Bookshop, McNally Jackson, and Barnes and Noble at Union Square.  I’m hoping to find a bookstore that is in walking distance from the KGB bar so that guests can amble over there before a reading and, also, to minimize the travel for any employee who might have to schlep a stack of books back and forth.  If you know of any bookstore(s) in the area that might be interested in such an arrangement, or if you work for one, please let me know.

KGB Bookseller Needed

As those who attend Fantastic Fiction know, Mobile Libris, an independent bookseller, sells the readers’ books at every event. (They are the quiet folks on the stools by the back of the bar). Because of financial reasons, they can no longer afford to send an employee to KGB Fantastic Fiction. So we are looking for a volunteer to sell books for them. In their words:

“If you’d like to continue having books sold at your series, the procedure will be the same but for one thing: starting in September, we’re asking each organizer to find a volunteer to sell books at the event. Your volunteer will come to Mobile Libris’ office on 6th and 28th in Manhattan and be trained like a regular bookseller (obviously it would be optimal to have one person who could commit to be at each meeting of your series); s/he will pick up books and drop them off at our office just as our booksellers do; and as an incentive, s/he will be able to purchase any book available to us, anytime, at a 40% discount.”

Does this sound like something you’d want to do? You’d be providing a valuable service to the spec fic community and you might even get to meet some cool people too.
