Hells yeah, LJ is cosponsoring a party at BEA this year. From the Facebook page:
Join Bookrageous, “a podcast about books and why they’re awesome” for a party featuring some of our favorite authors — hijinks guaranteed to ensue. First 250 drinks are on us! After that, every drink is a good deed and a donation to Housing Works.
Thanks to this year’s raffle, three lucky attendees will get a personalized list of reading recommendations, courtesy of the Bookrageous hosts and the Library Journal Book Review! You could also win one of several audiobooks, hand-picked by Library Journal Media Editor, Stephanie Klose. Raffle tickets will be $5 each, or 5 for $20, and all proceeds will benefit Housing Works.
We’ve been recommending their books for months, and now they’ll be joining us in person! This year’s featured authors include: Nathan Larson, Sarah MacLean, Rosie Schaap, and Teddy Wayne. We’ll also be joined by Library Journal Reviews Editor and librarian Etta Thornton, who will teach us the secrets of readers advisory.
All hail our wonderful sponsors: BookExpo America, Book Riot, and Library Journal.
