We had a great time selling books and meeting authors at the 2012 Modern Language Association convention in Seattle last week. Editors Courtney Berger and Ken Wissoker attended along with staff from our books and journals marketing departments. We said a bittersweet goodbye to one of our signature book series, Series Q, with a popular wine and cheese party. Michael Warner mused on the end of that iconic series in an article in the Chronicle of Higher Education that many at the party were buzzing about. Many of our authors stopped by to pose with our books. Here are a few pictures, to see more, head over to our Facebook page.
