SLJ DOD 2014

Here’s what librarians had to say about Day of Dialog 2014:

“A great opportunity for a one-day-cram-as-much-as-you-can conference! A powerhouse of panels, new books and authors/illustrators! I will definitely be back . . . with a bigger bag to carry home all the new books!”
John Scott, Friends School of Baltimore

“It was a completely worthwhile experience. In just one jam-packed day, I absorbed as much or more information than I got in the next three days spent at BEA.”
Kacy Helwick, New Orleans Public Library

“The SLJ Day of Dialog is among the highlights of my year.”
– Laurel Sharp, Liverpool Public Library

SLJ Day of Dialog is a MUST for all librarians who stay on top of the ins and outs of children’s and young adult publishing.”
– Lisa Sedta, Montclair Public Library

“In Day of Dialog, SLJ has perfected the recipe for Librarian Happiness. Librarians + authors, illustrators and publishers + a content-rich day + a few free books = inspired, excited librarians ready to share the joy of reading with the world!”
– Elisabeth Proffen, Howard County Library System
