The ALTA Bookfair is always a celebration of the work of our community. Enjoy browsing the titles translated by your colleagues, and know that with every purchase, you're giving back to ALTA and to indie bookstores, and supporting translators and their presses! Read on to find out more about our many options for celebrating translated books below, including the ALTA46 Bookfair, our Bookshop.org Bookfair, and our annual Read the World Social Media Bookfair.
Request a Book for the ALTA46 Bookfair
ALTA is delighted to announce that this year's conference bookfair is being run in partnership with the University of Arizona Bookstore, as a popup event. To request a title for the ALTA46 bookfair, please fill out this form by August 1, 2023. Please note that titles must be published within the past five years, returnable, and distributed in the U.S.
Requesting a book does not guarantee that it will be available at the bookfair. Due to our agreement with the bookseller, some books are unable to be requested due to their distributor, even if they fulfill the above requirements. (This could be due to a book having a "short discount," or other significant shipping costs.) We make every effort to include as many requested books as possible, and you will be notified in advance of the conference if your book(s) will not be able to be sold at the bookfair.
request a book for the alta46 bookfair
PLEASE NOTE: The UA Bookstore can accept a maximum of 3 book requests per person. You may request books even if you are not planning to attend ALTA46, but we ask that you let us know your conference plans in the above form (this will help us know how many copies of your book to order). If you submit more than 3 book requests, ALTA will pass on the last 3 requests to the bookstore.
Publishers may request up to 10 books. Please note that you have the option to send a list of titles in an Excel spreadsheet to firstname.lastname@example.org, in lieu of filling out this form for each of your books. All the info requested in the form must be included in your spreadsheet. Email email@example.com if you would like an Excel template.
Conference attendees (publishers, translators, etc) may NOT place fliers, books, or any other materials on the bookfair tables. We are grateful the UA Bookstore is willing to facilitate our bookfair and we can all do our part to ensure that it is a good experience for them.
All books requested through this form will also automatically be added to our Bookshop.org virtual ALTA46 bookfair (see below!) if they are available on Bookshop. The sooner you submit your title, the longer it will be featured as part of our virtual bookfair!
Deadline: August 1, 2023
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

All books requested above for the ALTA46 Bookfair will automatically be included in our ALTA46 virtual bookfair on Bookshop.org as well.
Please note that not all books are available on Bookshop.org. Books must have an ISBN and be available through Ingram to appear on Bookshop.org. We also cannot list books that are sold on Bookshop pages outside of the US (such as the UK Bookshop). We will upload as many titles as we are able.
