ALA Events – Junior Library Guild

If you are attending ALA, be sure you stop by the Junior Library Guild (JLG)’s Booth #2256. Here’s just some of what they have planned:  

  • Interviews by Roger Sutton, editor-in-chief of The Horn Book Magazine, with some of your favorite authors and illustrators. Come hear 2009 Newbery medal winner Neil Gaiman, 2009 Caldecott Winner Beth Kroomes, 2009 Laura Ingalls Wilder medal winner Ashley Bryan, and more.
  • Booktalks by our very own Leslie Bermel evey morning and afternoon featuring sneak previews of our line-up of titles for Fall 2009. 
  • More book give-aways than ever before. At the end of each of Leslie’s booktalks, we’ll draw one winner who will receive ALL of the books covered in Leslie’s presentation. Win them before you can buy them.
  • Conference Special: Get the Horn Book Guide Online FREE for one year when you place a new or renewal order with us at ALA.
  • Our biggest free book drawing ever: Win free books for a year. Enter for a chance to win 4 reading levels of your choice for one year. That’s 48 books, a $636 value!
