Your site is a perfect match for information on our upcoming Boston Book, Paper & Photo Expo, May 4th at the Shriner’s Auditorium in Wilmington, Mass. We have prepared a whole press packet of articles, images and releases on the show. We’d love to submit them for use on your site, however, we don’t see a contact listed. Can you let us know the procedure for submitting such information.

We currently do not post any promotional material besides what is listed in the “Book Fair & Book Sale Calendar” page, and what is included as part of articles posted.
