We are down to the final day of Audiobook Month, but that doesn't mean you have to set aside your headphones or stop encouraging your patrons to grab some CDs for their summer road trips.
To learn more about the great voices behind some of the most beloved characters visit Recorded Books. They are currently spotlighting Thérèse Plummer, Jonathan Todd Ross, Tim Gerard Reynolds, Ramón de Ocampo, Jared Goldsmith, Davina Porter, and Jim Frangione. Their website also features many other narrators, author profiles, audio clips, and resources.
It’s that time of year again… ALA Annual! If you’re in Chicago for this conference be sure to stop by and visit our sponsors for the best author signings, events, galleys, swag, and more. Grey House Publishing even has two Unshelved posters they are giving away, while supplies last! Click the links below for details.
I'll be speaking at a few conferences this spring. You can see me:
March 30th (evening keynote) and 31st (morning graphic novel talk) in Hershey, PA, at the Pennsylvania School Librarian's Association conference.
May 3rd in Worcester, MA, at an event for the Massachusetts Library System, I'll be giving two of our keynotes, one on either side of lunch, and I'll also hang out a bit to swap stories.
May 4th in Portsmouth, NH, I'll be giving a at the New Hampshire Library Association Spring Conference.
I'll also be at ALA Annual in June at the first Library Comic booth #1321 with a bunch of new T-shirts and whatever else Chris and I can come up with.
Hope to see you at one of these!
PS: I'm currently booking talks for this fall and next spring. Contact me if you're interested. Details on keynotes and breakout sessions are available on our talks page, but I'm open to other ideas as well.
