Wrap Up: ALA Midwinter & OLA Super Conference

It's been a busy week! From Jan. 25-28, we were in Seattle, Washington for the ALA Midwinter conference. At booth 2607, we busily handed out excerpts of our new graphic novel War Brothers, talked about our free Book Talks for interactive white boards, and introduced librarians to our Spring 2013 and key backlist titles. It was gratifying to have so many people come into the booth already familiar with our books (Fatty Legs was a big hit!).

And then today (Jan. 31), I went to the OLA Super Conference to assist with some author signing events at our distributor Firefly's booth, #706. We had Ed Butts signing Bodyguards and Claire Eamer signing The World in Your Lunch Box, and both were out of books within an hour!

Loris Lesynski will be signing tomorrow at 10:30 am (booth 706), and Kate Cayley will be signing at the Follett booth (also in the 700 aisle) at 10 am tomorrow too. So if you missed our authors today, be sure to drop by tomorrow!
