Children’s Literary Salon: August 7th

On Saturday, August 7th at 2:00 p.m. I’m having a fantastic Children’s Literary Salon (we changed the name from Children’s Literary Cafe after people kept asking for ice cream).  Please note:
Join a distinguished panel of two children’s book publishers who are breaking new ground and finding ways to use eBook technology in a children’s literary format.  The panel will include Stephen Roxburgh of namelos as well as other publishers working in the field.

The Children’s Literary Salon is a monthly gathering of adults who are fans of children’s literature.  Professionals, librarians, authors, illustrators, publishers, booksellers, teachers, and anyone else interested in the field are welcome to attend our meetings.  The Literary Salon provides free Advanced Readers galleys, a rotating series of talks with professionals in the field, and great conversation.  This program is for adults only.

This event will be held in the Berger Forum on the second floor.

  1. I wish the NY Public Library was closer to the West Coast…Thankfully you keep your far flung in the loop with news and reviews.

  2. oops meant to say far flung fans in the loop.

  3. Karen Gray Ruelle says:

    This sounds great, Betsy! I hope to be there.

  4. Anne Ursu says:

    Can I get my hair styled, too?

  5. Oh boy, a literary salon! I was hoping you would use that name a long time ago, when we suggested it (we being TheInfomancer and myself, no?) and I am very happy to see it thus named.

    • Elizabeth Bird says:

      To be honest, it was his suggestion to make the last word “salon”. We knew it couldn’t be a “cafe” but we were stumped for an alternative. All hail The Infomancer then!

  6. This sounds like my cup of tea. I might be in the city on Saturday. Is there parking at the New York Public Library?

    • Elizabeth Bird says:

      Nothing so simple. We’re right in the heart of midtown. If you can find street parking, great! Otherwise, you’re stuck using the $10+ per hour parking garages. My advice: Better take the subway, eh?

  7. Thanks for the heads-up, Betsy! Hope to make it…
