Winter Institute logoThe American Booksellers Association’s 13th annual Winter Institute (Wi13) will be held in Memphis, Tennessee, on January 22–25, 2018, thanks to the generous support of Ingram Content Group, the event’s lead sponsor, and additional support from 93 publishers large and small.

“We are enormously grateful to the record number of sponsors that have shown their commitment to independent booksellers through their participation in the Winter Institute,” said ABA Director of Development and Publisher Relations Matthew Zoni. “In 2018, our 94 sponsors come from all corners of the publishing landscape — big publishers, small presses, university presses, and book distributors — to meet independent booksellers from all over the country in Memphis. We hope all ABA members will join us in expressing appreciation to our lead sponsor, Ingram, and to every one of these sponsors for their ongoing support.”
