ABA member stores can place their orders for this year’s ABC Best Books for Young Readers catalog from now until September 8 via an order form on BookWeb.
The full-color, 20-page consumer circular is slated to be in stores in early October. It will feature more than 200 frontlist and backlist titles for children and teens, all suggested by ABA member booksellers. The catalog carries no fourth-quarter/holiday branding so booksellers can use it throughout the year.
This year’s catalog cover, which was chosen by the ABC Children’s Group Advisory Council, features an illustration from Windows, written by Julia Denos and illustrated by E.B. Goodale, to be published by Candlewick Press this October.
Members of the ABC Children’s Group at ABA will automatically receive 250 free catalogs with no imprinting (stores can join the ABC Group here). ABA stores that have opted to receive the Children’s White Box mailing will automatically receive 20 free catalogs with no imprinting. The online order form is for purchasing additional catalogs, either imprinted or plain.
Additional catalogs are available in units of 500 copies. The cost for each additional 500-unit is $25 for ABC Group members and $35 for non-members, shipping included. The one-time plate cost for imprinting, if desired, is $75 for ABC Group members and $125 for non-members. (Full details are available on the order form.)
