ALTA’s bookfair is always a celebration of the work of our community. During our virtual 2021 conference, ALTA is using Bookshop.org to highlight member translations and the titles published by translation presses. As affiliates of Bookshop, Bookshop pays ALTA a 10% commission on every sale, and gives a matching 10% to independent bookstores. Read more about their model at https://bookshop.org/pages/about.
To request a title for the ALTA44 bookfair on Bookshop.org, please fill out this form by August 23, 2021. Fill out one form for each title. Publishers, please note that you have the option to send a list of titles and ISBNs in an Excel spreadsheet to email@example.com, in lieu of filling out this form for each of your books. Please ensure that each book you list is available at Bookshop.org.
Please note that not all books are available on Bookshop.org. Books must have an ISBN and be available through Ingram to appear on Bookshop.org. We will upload as many titles as we are able.
The deadline to submit bookfair requests is August 23, 2021.
This year, we are also excited to announce the debut of the Read the World! Much like Smol Fair, Read the World will be an online bookfair taking place largely over social media. It’s FREE to participate! ALTA will provide a shared bookfair hashtag and a shared discount code, along with graphics, for publishers and editors to use from October 11-17. The more each press or journal spreads the word by using the hashtag and the discount code, the more attention we can drive toward supporting translation publishers. Translators, encourage your publishers to join Read the World by signing up with ALTA by August 23! Use this form: https://forms.gle/Q19cYwg1CPguuJap8
