ABEBOOKS SIGNS CO-SPONSORSHIP AGREEMENT WITH MINNESOTA AGREEMENT WITH MINNESOTA PUBLIC RADIO'S THE WRITER'S ALMANAC®

29th November, 2001

(Victoria, BC) - AbeBooks, the world’s leading source for out-of-print and hard-to-find books, has signed a two-year co-sponsorship agreement with Minnesota Public Radio’s The Writer’s Almanac®.

The literary show, hosted by renowned personality Garrison Keillor, has entertained one million listeners with a daily dose of poetry and history, since 1994.

“We’re very pleased to have negotiated this kind of exposure,” said abebooks CEO Brent James. “The recognized voice of Garrison Keillor is a fantastic advocate for our company, making The Writer’s Almanac® a very good fit for us.”

While abebooks’ online inventory features over 30 million books, James says the company is taking strides to promote rare titles, first editions and signed classics. “The Writer’s Almanac® listeners are the perfect audience for our service,” says James.

The abebooks co-sponsorship can be heard three-to-four times a week on 300+ stations throughout the United States. Listeners enjoy The Writers Almanac® in such markets as New York, San Francisco, Houston, Detroit, Boston, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, San Diego, Indianapolis and Seattle.
