This year’s fall book shows are packed with authors, education,
and lots of opportunities for booksellers to compare notes.
Below are highlights for all eight shows by date,
from mid-September through late October.
● The Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance show gets
a jump start on Thursday, September 15, at a beach party at
Mary Kay Andrew’s historic Tybee Island beach house, with
appetizers and cocktails from Andrew’s Beach Party Cookbook
(St. Martin’s, summer 2017).
● Every evening there are opportunities to hear writers,
including a late-night event with seven authors: the Shoe
Burnin’ Show on Friday after the SIBA supper. On Saturday
night stand-up comedians Trae Crowder, Drew Morgan, and
SIBA Discovery Show (Sept. 16–18)
Hilton Savannah Desoto in Savannah, Ga.
