Scholar's Choice

The Northeast Modern Language Association arranges with The Scholar’s Choice to manage the combined book exhibit for our annual conference, taking place April 12 to 15 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It may be possible for your recently-published books to be included in their display. Publishers who are unable to attend, but wish to have a few titles exhibited should contact  The Scholar's Choice.

Please refer to the guidelines below:

“Any members interested in having their book displayed at the upcoming NeMLA meeting should contact their publisher as soon as possible to see if they would be willing to send the book for the exhibit.  Requests from the presses will be accepted until March 1 or until the table space has filled. The Scholar’s Choice displays on behalf of the publishers and all requests must come from them, not the individual authors. If they don’t already have it, the press may request the appropriate paperwork by emailing Mary Lynn Howe.”
