We need a volunteer in the Chicago area to do two things for us:
In return for this profound display of support we will shower you with Unshelved merchandise, signed books, lunch, and free exhibit hall passes to ALA
We're taking about a coat closet's worth of boxes. If you don't have a large enough vehicle (or any vehicle at all) we could potentially rent a minivan and pick them up, but help taking them in the hall would be much appreciated.
If you are this good a person, please contact me. Thanks!
P.S. why don't we just ship our books to the conference like everyone else? It's hard enough to make a profit at an expensive show at ALA - paying the exorbinant freight costs just kills us.
Update We have found ourselves a truly good person - one with a minivan.
