Events at MBA Website

The Midwest Booksellers Association now lists events from member bookstores on its website. Since the service just started, the events listings are a little thin, but hopefully the idea will catch on. The MBA is a nonprofit trade association for independent booksellers in Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. The group currently boasts more than 250 members.
