Have you ever had to remind someone that the world revolves around you? Well Book Expo America understands, they have created a HEAVENLY HAVEN just for us Librarians! Don't believe me? Start by checking out the special events they set up for us to enjoy! Consider also the fact that they set-up a Librarian Lounge for us to hang out and we have a Reading Room brought to us by our best advertisers - Unshelved! (Who needs Dilbert when you work in a Public, School or Academic Library? Okay, maybe the Special Librarians that work for various corporate institutions, but remember we outnumber them!) I know what Dewey would do - he would sign up to join in this year's BEA fun, after all he did hang out at BEA in 2008 - check out the comic strips documenting his 2008 visit if you haven't read them already.
Just like a good book, BEA is an opportunity for us to take a break from our everyday lives and relish the joys found in good books, meet great authors and the publishing companies that provide us with those books and their authors. For more details check out http://www.bookexpoamerica.com/en/Show-Info/Librarians/ and register for the best three day event that you don't have to leave behind in New York (hearts are optional). In fact, please do take it home with you and share the experience with everyone that misses coming with you this year!
Once again, librarians save with special librarian rates and group discounts - $95 for a 3-Day Pass or $60 for a 1-Day Pass. Register Here. If you are traveling in a group – email Diana Press at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on the specials for group discounts.
