How do we select titles for the catalog?
- We try to vet each and every title we include in the catalog for content always with an eye to the 5th Amendment and respect to diversity and content in every way.
- We have a good relationship with our publishing partners who tend to know us and know our market, know what books they have marketing budgets for, and propose books accordingly.
- This title got past us, our editors, and we received no red flags from anyone with access to the catalog list of titles until the printed catalog landed in stores. The catalog title list has been posted on nciba.com and sciba.com since August. An email was sent to the store contacts for the catalog that included a link to the title list in September and print copies of the titles list were available at the Discovery Show and the SCIBA Trade Show in October.
- Free speech extends to titles and viewpoints NCIBA and SCIBA do not agree with.
