Norton, University of Hell Press, Broadview Press, PM Press, Verso, Haymarket, and our good friends at Mother Foucault’s Bookshop in Portland, our favorite bookstore in the Portland area.

Saturday, October 28, 8:30 am – 11:30 am, and then 1-4:30 pm
Sunday, October 29, 9 am – Noon

Additionally, PAMLA members with new books can bring them to display. Note: there will be an unmanned table, so we can’t guarantee that their book won’t walk away.

We are also proud to add that participants of our Book Exhibit like Greg Gerding of University of Hell Press, Elizabeth Pieslor of W.W. Norton, and Don LePan of Broadview Press, will all be presenting at the conference. Seek them out for a chat in the Book Exhibit, or after their session ends:
