NCBPMA Holiday Party Recap

Cheers to our new NCBPMA president, Kat Engh!

The annual NCBPMA holiday party at the Hotel Rex was a wonderful success this year!  Making this event an extra special occasion was the announcement of our new president. Adrienne Biggs has decided to step down from her role and pass the torch into the very capable hands of Kat Engh of North Atlantic Books.

Kat is a Community Outreach & New Media Specialist for North Atlantic Books, an independent publisher in Berkeley, where she’s worked in the publicity department for close to 3 and a half years. She has managed publicity for books in a variety of genres, from fiction to new age spirituality. She also co-manages the company web journal and social network,, where she hosts author webinars and podcasts, creates book trailers, and contributes occasional articles.

Kat has been attending NCBPMA meetings for as long as she’s been with North Atlantic, and the publisher has been a member for over 10 years.

Other highlights from the night include our very own Michael Larson winning the raffle grand prize of a free night at the Hotel Rex and the announcement that publicist, Kat Sanborn has been hard at work planning an impressive calendar of event for our upcoming year.

We the board would like to thank all of our friends, members and non-members alike, who came out to share the evening with us!
