Join School Library Journal for the most anticipated librarian-only gathering of the year and be informed, inspired, and entertained by the best authors, editors, and publishers in the industry. Spend the day discussing the latest trends and get the inside scoop on the hottest books in the world of children’s and young adult literature.
This event includes a full day of panels and speaker presentations by celebrated authors as well as breakfast and lunch. Attendees enjoy access to free ARCs and an opportunity to network with colleagues from around the country in an intimate library-centric setting. Get a first look at exciting titles due out this fall and walk away with bags filled with books and inspiring ideas for your libraries and classrooms. Plan to stay for the whole day and be on hand for the announcement of the 2018 Boston Globe-Horn Book Awards, which will follow the closing keynote.
