Dealmakers: A Speed-Networking Event from The League of Assistant EditorsHousing Works Bookstore Cafe (126 Crosby St NY, NY) Map it $15
A fast-paced night of speed networking for young acquiring editors and young agents with clients: think 15+ lunches in an hour, minus the restaurant anxiety ("do I chew funny? I think I chew funny."), plus a free drink. Bring a stack of business cards and be prepared to answer questions like "what is your dream acquisition" and "when we work together to publish a massive bestseller with strong backlist potential, what will that project look like?"
Tickets are $15 and include a drink (beer, wine, or seltzer) and 10% off all books that night; 100% of proceeds go to Housing Works' mission to fight homelessness and AIDS. Hosted by the League of Assistant Editors. Registration required, so we can make sure there's someone for everyone to make a lunch date with.
Open to all editors who can accept submissions and all agents with things to submit. Please buy an "agent" or an "editor" ticket and let us know your age, where you work, and whether you work on adult or children's books with the ticket confirmation information. You will be seated according to those details.
