All of us here at NVNR have been glued to the Weather Channel, watching the progress of Hurricane Ida as it made landfall on the Louisiana coast. We are thinking constantly of our friends and colleagues in the path of the storm, hoping you are safe.
For those of you affected by Hurricane Ida there is immediate assistance available from the Book Industry Charitable Foundation (Binc). Please don’t hesitate to ask for help
For those of you who would like to help, you can donate to Binc. Your assistance will be deeply appreciated.
Far, far down on the list of things to worry about, we want to let our NVNR attendees and partners know that the storm will cause a delay in the shipment of the NVNR Show Boxes. Our friends at Books Forward, who manage the herculean task of organizing, packing and shipping the boxes to NVNR attendees, are located in New Orleans. Books Forward has been a stalwart and enthusiastic supporter of NVNR. We have heard from them and are happy to report that everyone there is safe and well. But shipments cannot be processed until power is restored and the city is again open to traffic.
We will keep everyone updated as we receive more information. And we know you will join us in wishing for the safety and quick recovery of everyone affected by Hurricane Ida.
