May 9th Meeting: Behind the Scenes at the Bookstore

Sam Kaas, the Events Manager for Third Place Books, Lake Forest Park, is our guest for the May program. He will talk about how bookstores support both readers and authors. He’ll describe many different aspects of running a bookstore, from how buying decisions are made to how they respond to customer requests. He will also give us some insight into current trends in mysteries and share the secrets of good book covers.

As the person who manages events, Sam will also talk about how authors can work with bookstores to sell their books and put together an event that will be a success for both the bookstore and the author.
