Meet the SLJ “Book Nerds” LIVE on Facebook

SLJ editors Shelley Diaz and Kiera Parrott—aka the “Book Nerds”—are launching a semimonthly live video series on Facebook, starting Tuesday, April 17 at 1 p.m. (ET). 

Every other Tuesday, the editors will broadcast a short, live video from their offices in lower Manhattan. Topics will include behind-the-scenes scoops on what the SLJ team is working on, insight into how starred reviews are debated and decided, roundups on trending topics in children’s and YA literature, interviews with special guests, exclusive cover reveals, and more.

To view and chat with the editors, simply visit our Facebook page on Tuesday, April 17 at 1 p.m. (ET). No registration is required. After the live broadcast, the archived video will be available on Facebook and SLJ TV.
