Unshelved @ BEA

How to Ban a Book

It's time again for our yearly pilgrimage to New York, city of my birth, where publishers, booksellers, librarians, and authors gather together at BookExpo America, a three-day orgy of booknerdiness. If you've never had the pleasure, we invite you to enjoy our comic primer What Would Dewey Do @ BEA? (PDF). We made it five years ago but it still rings true today.

We're super psyched (and slightly nervous) to be debuting our newest talk How to Ban a Book, plus we've got our own table (with a small assortment of books and other merchandise) at the Library Journal Librarian's Lounge, booth 2148 (you don't have to be a librarian to come see us there). Here's our full schedule:

11am - Noon: Signing @ LJ Lounge (booth 2148) 4pm - 5pm: Signing @ LJ Lounge (booth 2148)

1pm - 2pm: How to Ban a Book @ Room 1E03
3pm - 4pm: Signing @ LJ Lounge (booth 2148)

11am - noon: Signing @ LJ Lounge (booth 2148)

If none of those signing times work for you, drop by the LJ Lounge and you may find us there goofing off.

For your convenience here is the list of librarian and education programming and LJ events.
