MESA - Middle East Studies Association

MESA ’18 Book Bazaar

MESA's Book Bazaar is another aspect of the annual meeting that attendees look forward to every year. It features an average of 90 exhibitors (from university presses and publishing houses to Middle Eastern jewelry, clothing and souvenirs) and offers the latest publications in the field.

Essential to MESA's Book Bazaar is the Cooperative Book Display. If you are the author of an independently published book or a small press with few Middle East titles, consider promoting your publication in the ABE-MESA Book Co-op.
