Rachel Fewell, Denver Public Library
I’ve attended Feria Internacional del Libro de Guadalajara (FIL) for the past six years. In that time, I’ve learned some best practices for preparing for and navigating the largest Spanish-language book fair in the world. I’d like to give participants a starting point for deciding whether they should go, which vendors/distributors to reach out to, how to get a scholarship from ALA/FIL, and what to do when they are at FIL. This year, I helped several Colorado library colleagues at FIL and it saved them lots of time. I’d like to share this information with an even wider audience. Thanks for considering.
