Prior to the start of the Heartland Fall Forum, Sourcebooks had the opportunity to invite approximately 50 independent booksellers and industry professionals to our offices in Naperville, IL. We were so excited to be able to host this awesome group of booksellers!
A chartered bus brought our guests from The Westin in Lombard to our offices where they were greeted with lunch from a local favorite, Portillo’s. (The chocolate cake was a huge hit!), some familiar books (our Indie Next picks!), and goody bags in honor of our newsletter, Book Tipsy.
Lunch was followed by a tour of the office which included stops in editorial, design, content delivery, customer service and of course an introduction to our beloved Well-Read Cow. It was a lively tour and really great for all of employees to get a chance to say hello to the amazing people on the frontlines.
From there, we took our guests downtown Naperville to visit Anderson’s Bookshop and shop local. It was a great day at Sourcebooks and it was so exciting to have these special visitors! A huge thank you to everyone who made the trip out here, we loved having you and you are welcome back anytime!
