Founded in 2016, the International Book Fair Scholarship for US Booksellers (IBS) is a one-of-a-kind program that connects American booksellers to the greater world of international book publishing. This year, Europa Editions and Other Press are joining forces to send three booksellers on an all-expenses-paid trip to the Turin Book Fair, one of the biggest and best gatherings of the worldwide publishing community.
Winning booksellers will have the invaluable opportunity to learn about the international bookselling scene first-hand, enjoying not only a customized schedule of panels, meetings, and parties with international booksellers, authors, and publishers, but the opportunity to host their own pop-up indie bookstore store right in the heart of the fair.
Europa Editions and Other Press encourage all booksellers interested in international literature and fostering relationships with the international bookselling community to apply. Scholarships include travel, accommodation, and per diem. The deadline for applications is March 1, 2017.
For questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (212) 868-6844.

“I have been greeted as family by all the extended Europa clan. I was humbled by their keen interest in my work and the respect I was given, reminding me of the importance—easily overshadowed—of the bookseller.”—Ariana Paliobagis, 2016 IBS recipient
