The conference bookstore at AASA’s 2022 National Conference on Education in Nashville will carry about 220 works on various aspects of K-12 education and system leadership.
Offered at discount prices, the books will be organized in nine categories, including leadership, conference speakers, focus on kids, personal/professional growth, technology/data/media and “Dan’s Discoveries” (reading recommendations from AASA Executive Director Daniel Domenech).
Additionally, the store will stock various AASA merchandise such as polo shirts, travel tumblers, pens, baseball caps and T-shirts from the organization’s newly launched Live Well, Lead Well campaign. AASA will cover shipping costs for any orders of $200 and above within the continental U.S.
The bookstore will host seven book signings on the first two days of the conference featuring eight books, including those by Thought Leader speakers from the conference. Signings will typically take place after a speaker’s presentation. However, Michael Fullan and Mark Edwards' signing, co-authors of the 2021 title Spirit Work and the Science of Collaboration, will take place the day before their appearance at the 3rd General Session.
A panel presentation involving four superintendents who recently have written books, “Book Publishing: How Superintendents Can Move from Concept to Published Work,” will take place in Room 205-A at 11:15 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 16.
The bookstore, sponsored by Sourcewell, will be located on the convention center’s second level near AASA registration. It will be open on Wednesday, Feb. 16, from 2 to 5 p.m.; Thursday, Feb. 17, from 7 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.; Friday, Feb. 18, from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturday, Feb. 19, from 7:30 a.m. to noon.
