Unshelved @ ALA

Friday kicks off our biggest show of the year, the American Library Association Annual Conference, held this year in Washington, DC. Here's your complete guide to what's going on at Unshelved's booth #2452 at the edge of the Graphic Novel Pavilion.

  • Stop by early and pick up a free Bibliovore badge ribbon while supplies last!
  • Be the first to purchase our newest collection Large Print. It's like no Unshelved book you've seen! We'll have great deals on full and partial sets of our books, which Gene and I will sign for you while you wait!
  • Jana is bringing a large selection of our fine merchandise, including an attractive new color (espresso!) for the bestselling Will Work For Books.
  • Bargain hunting? Our ten dollar clearance bin will be filled with random Unshelved t-shirts from the past.
  • We suggest you do your shopping early. Last year we completely sold out a day and a half before the show ended.

Stay tuned tomorrow for Gene's list of can't-miss programming, including the three panels he's a part of.

Update: Forgot to mention that, as always, you can catch new Unshelved Conference Tips in every issue of CogNotes, the free daily conference newspaper.
