Eerdmans at ETS and AAR-SBL 2021

Dear friends, 

Our planning for the annual meetings in November has been plagued by uncertainties. Even at this moment, we are not sure what to expect. But we want to let you know what we are planning. 

  • Eerdmans will attend both ETS and IBR-AAR-SBL, but our presence will be somewhat attenuated. 
  • We will gladly welcome you and talk with you in our booth. 
  • We will have books on display, including multiple copies of recent books, and especially of books that we know will be featured in sessions. 
  • But we will not sell books, and our sales and marketing colleagues will not attend the meetings. To purchase booksat a 40% discount, visit our ETS Virtual Storefront or AAR-SBL Virtual Storefront.
  • For the ETS meeting, James Ernest, editor-in-chief, will attend along with Alexander Bukovietski, vice president for editorial operations. 
  • At the AAR-SBL meeting our editors will be Andrew Knapp (our OT/HB acquisitions editor), Trevor Thompson (our NT acquisitions editor) and James Ernest (historical theology). We will have tables in the booth and will meet with you there (or elsewhere) by appointment, as usual. Colleagues from other departments will be present to converse with attendees. 
  • We will not have a reception this year. Caution seemed the wiser course. 


Here is the information regarding our booths and our hours at the ETS and AAR-SBL meetings: 

  • ETS: Booth 213 
    • Tuesday–Wednesday: 8:30 am to 6:00 pm  
    • Thursday: 8:30 am to 2:00 pm 
  • AAR-SBL: Booth 601 
    • Saturday–Monday: 8:30 am to 5:30 pm 
    • Tuesday: 8:00 am to 12:00 pm 

As usual, our editors will be making their own appointments. If you have questions for an acquisitions editor and don’t know who to write to, you may write to Amy Kent ( For general questions about the annual meetings, you may contact  

We know that many of you have had to make difficult decisions about your attendance. Those decisions affect you, your family, your institution, and others around you. For this year, we look forward to seeing as many of you as can attend. For next year, we hope that we may be able to return to something resembling the annual meetings that we remember so happily from the pre-COVID past.
