As part of a series of events for indie authors this fall, we’re delighted to extend to ALLi members attending Digital Book World (October 2-4, 2018) an exclusive invitation to tour Ingram’s nearby printing plant.
The tour will take place on October 5, 2018 from 9am through 2pm at Ingram Content Group, 14 Ingram Blvd, Nashville, Tennessee. On-site parking will be available.
