Event Information

Event description


Dear Colleague,

The Minnesota Book Publishers’ Roundtable began more than twenty-five years ago as a small group of publishing professionals meeting around a restaurant table and has blossomed into a diverse group representing a cross section of publishing activity in Minnesota.

Our bimonthly meetings provide a casual lunch and networking time, along with the opportunity to hear key speakers address issues that are timely and informative for publishing professionals. In addition, the Roundtable partners with MN Publishing Tweet Up in hosting monthly happy hours for publishing professionals, colleagues, and book lovers. Membership in the Roundtable is open to Minnesota book publishers and those from related industries. For more information, visit our website at www.publishersroundtable.org.

The purpose of the Minnesota Book Publishers’ Roundtable is:

1. To develop, advance, and promote the book publishing industry in Minnesota and adjacent areas;

2. To provide book publishers and others in related professions and trades an opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences; and

3. To promote good fellowship and friendly cooperation among its members.

To join our professional group or renew membership, please fill out the attached membership application form and submit it by November 1, 2018. If youre renewing and your information has not changed from last season, please indicate that in the form, and we will continue to post your current info in our membership directory. (If you are unsure, you can view the membership directory here: www.publishersroundtable.org/index.php/membership/ directory.) You can bring the completed form with your check to our September event, or you can mail it with payment (payable to MBPR) to MBPR, c/o Laura Villano, Jump!, 5357 Penn Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55419.

Early-bird membership dues are $70 per organization or $35 per individual (plus a small transaction fee if paying by credit card) through October 1. After October 1, the rates will increase to $95 for organizations and $50 for individuals. (Note: The individual rate is intended for freelancers and one-person companies; any organization with two or more employees is required to pay the organization rate.)
