BookExpo America

This year BookExpo America is in New York City for the second time in a row, and for the second time in a row we'll be hosting the Unshelved Library Reading Room where librarians (and anyone else) can come by, sink into our comfy couch, put your feet up on our sturdy coffee table, and pick out the ARC of your choice, provided by the library marketing groups at publishers big and small.

But wait, there's more! Because if you look at the program guide you'll find the following:

We all know Nancy Pearl as a world-famous librarian, bestselling author, and action figure model. But what makes her tick? Are there skeletons in her closet? Dramatic revelations from her salacious past? Find out when Unshelved creators Gene Ambaum and Bill Barnes interview her live on stage.

Click here to register for BEA and you'll get a special Unshelved bonus - a $10 luncheon voucher. Plus you'll be registered to win lunch with Gene and me, which may or may not be an incentive.

We look forward to seeing you at BEA, our favorite library conference!
