MIP Virtual Conference Booths

MIP Conference BoothDue to the COVID-19 crisis, many academic conferences and events are being cancelled. We'll miss seeing all of you in person, but we're still excited for the academic interaction and cooperation that's taking place online, and we're going to continue featuring the books of our wonderful authors, providing flyers for books and series, and facilitating conversations between prospective authors and our acquisitions editors! While we can't display our books or have editorial conversations in person for now, we'll be setting up virtual exhibit booths here. 

Sign up for our monthly newsletter for updates on upcoming conferences, special deals, new titles, and more. Plus, you'll automatically be entered into a drawing for a free book when you sign up, and you'll have the chance to enter new drawings every month!
