OCC’s monthly meeting is coming up Saturday, June 12th, at the Brea Community Center, and this is one you don’t want to miss!
Our all-day guest is Borders, Inc. romance buyer Sue Grimshaw. Headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Borders Group, Inc., is a publicly held company with 2008 consolidated sales of $3.2 billion. Sue has worked for Borders for more than 14 years, the last eight of those years as a Romance buyer. She is married and lives in Michigan. In her spare time, when she is not reading, Sue and her husband enjoy the outdoors â€” bike riding in the summer and skiing in the winter.
During the morning session, Sue will speak on “The Business of Books.” If you’ve ever had questions about how books get on bookstore shelves, this is the talk for you! In the afternoon, Sue will lend more industry insights and also announce the winners of OCC’s Book Buyers Best award.
Doors open at 9:30 AM for Ask-an-Author with Tessa Dare and Kara Lennox. Hope to see you there!
