Your Ossining Public Library children’s librarians went to Book Expo America (a convention for booksellers, librarians and educators) this past week. On Tuesday, we attended several workshops for children’s librarians, and we were lucky enough to meet some great authors: Tim Green, Gennifer Choldenko, Rebecca Stead and Robie Harris. There were also 2 sessions of publisher presentations. They highlighted their favorite books that will be published in the fall. We also picked up some Advance Reading Copies of books that were signed by the author and which will be on the Summer Reading Game prize cart for you.
On Wednesday and Thursday we went to some more workshops and visited many, many publisher tables where we collected so many books for the library.
We also attended a very informative and funny panel with Jon Scieszka, Jeff Kinney, Adam Rex, David Lubar, and Mac Barnett, who talked about their new book, Guys Read: Funny Business, a book of short stories. They showed a funny video that you can watch here:
