About Us

The British Columbia Booksellers Association is the voice of independent booksellers in British Columbia. The Association and its members work to: promote the cultural importance of books by partnering together with publishers, writers and other associations in the Canadian book industry; contribute to B.C.'s annual Book Prizes; organize literary and writers' festivals in their own communities; and host many author readings and out-of-store events throughout the year.


By offering professional development seminars, circulating industry news, hosting an ongoing internet forum, and Facebook page, maintaining a webpage linking readers to their local indies, sending quarterly e-newsletters to members, and supporting our members on a personal basis, the Association works to promote the cultural identity and continued success of independent booksellers in every community throughout the province.
