2009 – Lisa Scottoline keynotes the Gala Author Tea at ALA Annual! Ben Rubinstein joins the department, bringing awesome tattoos.

2011 – Nevada Barr keynotes the Gala Author Tea at ALA Annual! Ali Fisher joins the department, bringing her trademark sense of humor and a love of sci-fi.
2012 – Jane Green keynotes the Gala Author Tea at ALA Annual! Talia moves to North Carolina (sniffle) but visits NYC often (yay!).
2013 – Macmillan Library has the #1 pick on the inaugural LibraryReads list, FANGIRL by Rainbow Rowell! Anne Spieth joins the department and brings cookies. Literally.
