Email Newsletter Goes Out (With a Link Here), Selling at the Women's Leadership Conference, Cookbook Sale

After spending the entire day writing the email newsletter, I'm finding it hard to write today's blog post. Our newsletters do tend to be event heavy, but I always try to write up one or two new books. This week I was inspired by holy places, writing up new books by James Carroll and Colin Thubron. So if you don't get our email newsletter, click here and double your reading pleasure.

I always get several replies back after the newsletter is sent out. Today I heard from my old colleague Jeanne, who has settled in Florida. As it must have been officially old home day, I also got an email from Nick, who moved back to Bristol after several years in the United States. Old Schwartz customers may fondly recognize both names.

Tomorrow I spend the day at the Pfister. It's the Women's Leadership Conference and several authors are speaking. The conference celebrates women who have pioneered their fields and uncovers their proven methods for success. Attendees will learn from accomplished women, discover what inspires them and harness the energy to empower themselves. Highlights of this year's conference include keynote speaker and UWM alum Beth Pritchard - Alshaya North American Advisor, and former President and CEO of Bath & Body Works and Dean & Deluca. Get more information here.

At Boswell, we're having a four-day cookbook overstock sale. I wound up bringing in too much inventory for our Wisconsin Restaurant show event, and it seems to make sense to sell some of it down. We've got a great selection of books, including a number of professional titles that are not only rare to get, but are priced very competitively with certain low-price websites. You can save 20% off our regular prices from now until Sunday, April 3rd.
