The Bay Area Independent Publishers Association is a diverse and open group involved in the world of independent publishing, from folks who simply have a book idea to published authors, editors to illustrators, readers to reviewers, agents to printers, audio book experts to book shepherds.
—Becky Parker Geist, BAIPA Board of Directors, President
