Scenes from Winter Institute 2016 with author Martin Seay
by Liam O’Brien
Greetings from Denver and the American Bookseller Association’s annual Winter Institute, where Melville House has been representing great books and celebrating author Martin Seay (The Mirror Thief, out in May 2016)!
It’s been an absolute whirlwind meeting our favorite booksellers and making a bunch of new friends, especially given that many of those indie booksellers were the very first champions of The Mirror Thief. Here are a few of our favorite moments from the last few days.
This was right there when I got off the plane, so, yeah, pretty great start.
Opening night reception at Tattered Cover.
Publishers, gettin’ educated.
The rapt crowd of booksellers watching the final seconds of the Broncos/Pats game.
Martin Seay at BookBar’s author-speed-dating event, making new fans.
BookBar’s amazing book-desk-hybrid.
