Dear Center Affiliate Directors,

I hope you are all doing well! I’m reaching out with a question for the
listserv and would appreciate any input that anyone is willing to share (If
you would prefer to reply directly to me or talk offline you can email me
directly at [log in to unmask]).

Do you receive requests from authors/publicists to feature their work in a
program, and how do you field those requests? There are often so many
writers, and only so many spaces with which to feature their work. Does
anyone have a successful strategy that you use to politely decline not
being able to feature a book for a program or event? Is there anyway that
you capture these interactions for future use?

Thank you in advance for your thoughtful contributions!
