Children’s and YA Lit Cafe: This Saturday!
Yep. There’s a new one at Donnell THIS Saturday. Remember, you are ALL invited. Here is the official announcement.
We just wanted to let you all know that on Saturday, March 15 (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):
Penguin Preview: A Look at the Highlights of 2007 and 2008
Saturday, March 15, 2 PM – Donnell Library Center (2nd Floor)
Join us as we welcome Viking/Firebird’s dynamic Sharyn November for a look at her 2007 and 2008 titles. She will be asking you lots of questions and, as an incentive, will be giving away ARCs of current and future titles.
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.
This preview is a great occasion to check out some of the latest trends and to speak with an editor about why she’s chosen the books she has, and what she’ll be looking for in the future.
Sarah Couri and Rebecca Schosha
