Tucson Festival of Books

Christopher Locke


Christopher Locke is the Director of Membership and Member Services for the Independent Book Publishers Assn., which assists the 3,600 members as they travel along their publishing journeys.

Major projects include managing the member benefits to curate the most advantageous services for independent publishers and author publishers; managing the Innovative Voices Program that supports publishers from marginalized communities; and hosting the IBPA podcast, “Inside Independent Publishing (with IBPA).”

He’s also passionate about indie publishing because he’s an author publisher himself, having published two novels so far in his young adult trilogy, "The Enlightenment Adventure."
