Children’s and YA Lit Cafe
Doing anything tomorrow (Saturday)? Well, how many of you in the New York area have heard about these librarian previews that some people get to attend and have thought to yourself, "Why can’t I get a piece of that action?" And what about those of you who have attended librarian previews but have wondered to yourself, "Why have I never seen the upcoming list of Henry Holt and Company?"
The stars are in alignment Saturday at 2:00, chickie babies. Below you will find the announcement regarding the most recent Children’s and Young Adult Literary Cafe. Anyone and everyone is invited to attend. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t done so before. We’re in a nice central location with ample bathrooms and everything. And here is the official word on the matter:
We just wanted to let you all know that on Saturday, January 19 (at 2pm), the Donnell Library Central Children’s Room will be hosting its monthly Lit. Cafe!
Below is a description of the event (feel free to contact us with any questions, etc. that you may have):
Henry Holt Preview: A Look at the Highlights of 2007 and 2008
Saturday, January 19, 2 PM – Donnell Library Center (2nd Floor)
Join us as we take a look a the best of Holt’s 2007 titles – and get a first peek at what they will be publishing in 2008 (before anyone else)!!!
Publisher’s previews are generally exclusive events, open only to prominent librarians, and those directly involved in selecting materials for large library systems. This is, therefore, a unique opportunity to examine new materials and speak with those who have a direct impact on what is published.
The Holt preview is the perfect occasion to check out the latest trends and speak with Holt’s publishers about why they’ve chosen the books they have, and what they will be looking for in the future.
As an extra bonus, Holt will be giving away Advanced Reader Copies of their titles!
Sarah Couri and Rebecca Schosha
