CONNECT YOUR GREAT SOUTHERN CUSTOMERS TO GREAT SOUTHERN BOOKS AND WRITERS

Looking for a lively, informed resource for your customers who can’t get enough news and recommendations on the latest in Southern lit?

ARTS (authorsroundthesouth.com) is packed with book recommendations, news, interviews, and more, and every day there is something new to discover. From Southern bestseller lists (updated weekly), to quirky titles, to prize-winning future classics, ARTS features the best Southern books to share and recommend. In addition, as the home of Lady Banks’ Commonplace Book, SIBA’s enormously popular and influential weekly e-newsletter, ARTS features insightful author interviews and articles, and news about the Southern literary scene. ARTS regularly features and enthusiastically welcomes recommendations from member booksellers, and links titles to member booksellers with online retail presence. In addition, the seasonal Okra Picks, books on Lady Banks’ Bookshelf, and The Pat Conroy Southern Book Prize finalists and winners are prominently featured and linked to members’ online stores. DISCOVER ARTS.

STARS (the Southern Traveling Authors Registration Service)is the best way for Southern indie booksellers to connect with writers. Discover when participating authors are in your area, and access author contact information for signings and appearances. With STARS, authors can easily reach booksellers who are interested in their books. And booksellers have a resource to find authors interested in their stores. LEARN MORE AND GET STARTED WITH STARS.
What’s a Parapalooza? A fun, readerly way to connect customers and books. Magic happens when readers share their favorite paragraphs with each other and then online via SIBA and ARTS. Organize a Parapalooza event—whether it’s associated with an author or community event, a special theme, or just for fun—and share it online. FIND OUT MORE.
