LJ Events at BEA
Thursday, May 30 - Saturday, June 1
All Day The Librarian’s Lounge, sponsored by LJ and SLJ, is not an event but a very important location. It is the place in the Javits Center for librarians to gather to relax, share ideas, and enjoy snacks and refreshments. There are author signings as well as CHAIRS. It is the BEA equivalent of Zelda’s fairy fountains.
Wednesday, May 29
6:30 p.m. BEA Librarians Dinner. A fancy schmancy (in the best way) dinner at the Yale Club. Donna Tart will be there, as will many amazing librarians. It’s invite only, but you can let us know you are interested!
7 p.m.-9 p.m. Don’t have an invite to the dinner? That’s okay, neither do I. We’ll go the equally awesome party sponsored by Bookrageous and BEA. There will be a lesson in readers advisory AND free drinks! Library Journal is a cosponsor.
Thursday, May 30
7:30 a.m.-9 a.m. Random House Library Marketing & Library Journal Author Breakfast. Yes, food and authors. How could you go wrong?
Friday, May 31
1-1:50 p.m. THE GREAT BEA TUMBLARIAN PANEL aka “Libraries + Tumblr = Connecting Readers + Writers” starring yours truly, the inimitable Rachel Fershleiser; the famed Kate Tkacik; the genius behind NYPL’s Tumblr, Angela Montefinise; and a Connecticut-based guacamole enthusiast we all know and love, Erin Shea.
3:30 p.m.-5:00 p.m. Shouting and sharing, two of librarians favorite activities. Join LJ and AAP at the 4th Annual Librarian Shout ‘n Share, where you can listen to some bad ass library folks talk books.
