Day of Dialog? What is that?
Join School Library Journal for its first Day of Dialog—a free, day-long program where librarians, editors, authors, and vendors meet to discuss the changing world of books, reading, and libraries. This year we’ll investigate whether blogs are changing our reading and buying habits, hear about the next wave in audiobooks for kids (Guys Listen!), and explore the future of books (like 39 Clues) that are leading readers beyond the page and into the digital world.
Blogs! Yay! What blogs/bloggers in particular?
Panel I: THE BLOGGER, THE BOOK, AND THE BUZZ
Are bloggers having an impact on what we read, what we add to collections, what we recommend? Here what avid bloggers Liz Burns (A Chair, a Fireplace, and a Tea Cozy), Laura Lutz (Pinot and Prose), Cheryl Klein (Brooklyn Arden), and author Libba Bray have to say about it.
Moderated by Betsy Bird, SLJ blogger and librarian, New York Public Library
Hey, that's you!
Why yes, yes it is.
When and where is this Day of Dialog?
Thursday, May 28th, from 8:30 to 4:30. It's at Dwek Center for Contemporary Culture, Central Library, Brooklyn Public Library, Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn, New York.
But, um, Liz, aren't you phobic about urban driving and parking?
Sh! No need to share all the bad stuff about me. But if I'm going to overcome that phobia (or find some way around it), you know it's for a good reason. Forget me (tho, blatant self promotion, I do think the blogging panel is going to be great). There will be audiobook discussions! Authors! Technology changing how we tell story! It's going to be fun, informative, and you will regret not going.
So click through to the full description of the Day and sign up now. And stop back here to let me know you're going!
