Unshelved @ ALA

ALA 2013

It's almost here, our biggest conference of the year, ALA Annual, held this year in the breezy metropolis of Chicago!

Come by booth 2548 early to pick up a free Will Work For Books badge ribbon while supplies last, and say Hi to Jana and me (sorry, Gene is on an extended family trip. He sends his regards). We'll have copies of our new book Bibliovores, along with bundles of our older books. We've also got great conference pricing on t-shirts, bags, hats, posters, cards, notebooks, and buttons. Anyone wearing Unshelved gear will get a special button!

(Here's a helpful PDF floorplan -- we're about 2/3 up the right side.)

For the first time at ALA I will be taking custom art commissions - brush inked illustrations costing $20-$200 depending on complexity (I can even do color). I can only draw a limited number in the time available, strictly first-come, first-served. Want to get a head start? Asking a friend to pick it up? Email me now with your request.

Today's @bookblrb

A teeny tiny book recommendation every day

A graphic novel adaptation of the story of Theseus and the half-bull he fights in the labyrinth beneath Crete.
