A road trip with fellow Library Marketers from HarperCollins and Macmillan + the librarians assembled for the 2009 MLA Conference + Laurie R. King = a fabulous trip for Erica!
Virginia, Talia, and I presented top picks from our respective Fall 2009 lists for the Publisher Round-Up and Book Buzz (if you would like a copy of my powerpoint leave a comment with your address and I’ll send it along).
Laurie R. King participated in the Conference Co-Chair’s Favorite Authors program. My synopsis and praise cannot even begin to compare with the MLA conference blog‘s. My favorite moment, though, was when the conference co-chair who had chosen Laurie to appear on this program was able to correctly answer a question regarding a character of Laurie’s, while Laurie had been unsure of the answer. Laurie took it in stride and with humor and we all had a good laugh!
And look at who I ran into on the exhibit hall floor. Robin Brenner, our very own Random House, Inc. Graphic Novel Catalog Contributor! Robin shares all her best tips for beginning and cultivating your library’s graphic novel collection.
