Infusing New Ideas in 2013

Posted on January 18, 2013 in In the News

Well, it looks like we have survived falling off the fiscal cliff, and won a reprieve from the much-anticipated end of the world predicted by our Mayan friends. What a relief, because Hooks Book Events is starting the New Year with a bang!

Upcoming Author Events and New Books
On January 3rd at our first event of 2013, HBE friend and author Dan Pink had his first author talk on his new book, To Sell is Human with our client Neustar. We are thrilled to be working with Dan on multiple events in the DC area ... from federal government audiences to entrepreneurial groups, non-profits and corporations. If you would like to host Dan for a book event at your organization, please give us a call to discuss.

Mark Tuesday May 7, 2013 on your calendars for an event with Dr. Paul Farmer, co-founder of Partners in Health. We are excited to be co-producing this public event with our good friends at the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue. Dr. Farmer will discuss his new spring title, To Repair the World.   We are expecting a sell-out crowd; plan to be part of it!

The new Know Ahead List is also ready; if you have not yet received a copy please ping us at and we will send you one. The KAL includes authors who are already confirmed for events with our clients and those who may be coming to town in the next few months. Take a look!

Finally, check out our calendar for some of the amazing author events we have confirmed in the coming months:

  • Dan Pink, To Sell Is Human:  The Surprising Truth About Moving Others

Bulk Book Orders and Author Services
Hot off the Press! We recently announced a new service for published authors-About Town Bookings. If you are an author with a recently published non-fiction book and would like our help with securing events in the Greater DC metro area, give us a shout and we can discuss the possibilities.

As a quick reminder, HBE has a robust Bulk Book Sales Division and we partner with three wonderful independent bookstores- Politics and ProseHarvard Book Store and Parnassus Books. We can handle non-returnable book orders and drop ship all over the lower 48. When you shop with us you are supporting great indie stores. Perfect!

Happy New Year
So here's to a Happy and Healthy New Year for all -- one filled with great books, new ideas and stimulating conversation. Let's make this a year in which we all can make a difference.
