Livrada, the ebook distribution platform that first made headlines by creating an innovative way for people to buy ebooks in major retail chain stores via specifically branded gift cards for individual titles, has announced this week its partnership with Hooks Book Events to enable event attendees to select a print or ebook edition of titles available for sale at the event when purchasing their tickets.
“Livrada has developed the most seamless, simple and elegant way to deliver e-books to a large audience. With Livrada, we’re able to offer an innovative way for our customers to engage with authors at our events by giving them the choice of an e-book or print copy when they purchase a ticket,” said Perry Pidgeon Hooks, President and co-founder of Hooks Book Events, in a press release.
The event, which will be held September 24th, will feature Honest Tea co-founder and TeaEO Seth Goldman, who will talk about his book, Mission in a Bottle: The Honest Guide to Doing Business Differently – and Succeeding. At the event, participants will receive a copy of Mission in a Bottle, and thanks to Livrada, will have the option to receive the print or digital edition, regardless of the device platform the readers choose.
“We’re excited to offer this new feature to serve the growing e-reading population. Our partnership with the well-respected Hooks Book Events is a logical fit. They are trailblazers in connecting leading thinkers and authors of our time with sophisticated audiences,” continued Leonard Chen, CEO of Livrada.
