Group Description

Welcome to the home of The ABC Group Listserv!

The ABC Group is dedicated to supporting the business of independent children's bookselling and the promotion of quality children's books. The membership includes booksellers, publisher members, author and illustrators, and other industry professionals. For more information about ABC programs, visit us on the ABA website at www.bookweb.org.

This is a private listserv for members of and subscribers to the ABC Group. The listserv allows these parties to share ideas, questions, and items of common interest. We respectfully ask publisher and author members to refrain from using the list for promotional purposes.

If you are uncertain about what qualifies as 'promotional purposes,' we define it as a post that promotes a particular product or line of products, the sale of which benefits you or your company. However, we do encourage all to join in the general conversation, and to make suggestions which further the general cause of the ABC Group membership as a whole. We particularly welcome substantial discussions about some of the larger issues in the children's book industry.

To find out how to become a member of or subscriber to The ABC Children's Group at ABA go to: http://www.bookweb.org/membership/abc

Accordingly, discussion of and exchange of information on the following subjects should be avoided: prices, terms of sale, costs, discounts, advances, mark-ups, preferences, advertising allowances, plans for dealing with particular customers, suppliers, or competitors, concerted action to refuse to deal with or to boycott certain companies, and marketing plans on a product line or geographic basis and any other discussion topics that could be construed to impose a restraint on trade and inhibit free and fair competition in the bookselling industry.
