A pair of major coin-publishing players will be on hand for the
Bibliomania Society Symposium this summer at the American
Numismatic Association World's Fair of Money.
The symposium, set to take place Aug. 7 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in
Room 42 of the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill.,
will feature the presentation, "What it Takes to Get your
Numismatic Book or Article in Print: How to Research, Write, and Have
It Published" by NBS members Q. David Bowers and Dennis Tucker.
Attendees will learn the keys to producing successful books and
articles from two noted experts, according to syposium sponsors. As
publisher at Whitman Publishing, Tucker is the gatekeeper for
incoming manuscripts and ideas for the numismatic publisher. A
leading hobby booster for 80 years, Whitman Publishing has put
millions of books, supplies, folders, and albums in the hands of
collectors, young and old, in addition to publishing many books for
more advanced numismatists.
Bowers is author of more than 50 award-winning numismatic books,
hundreds of articles, and holds the record for the longest-running weekly column in Coin
World. A noted rare coin dealer, Bowers is chairman emeritus
of Stack’s Bowers Galleries.
Both Bowers and Tucker are longtime Numismatic Bibliomania Society
A question and answer session will immediately follow the
presentation. The NBS Symposium is free to ANA convention goers as
well as NBS members.
