Welcome back from Thanksgiving, everyone!
I hope you all had an uncomfortably delicious holiday. While you're recovering with your leftovers lunch we have a few items to share with you:
- Teen Librarians, please join us next Tuesday (12/4) for the Association of American Publishers' first ever Children's and YA Tri-State Book Buzz! There will be goodie bags, galleys, breakfast, and good times. RSVP now!
- The paperback of Talia's tell-all memoir is coming out in January, so be sure to check that out...
Happy Friday, librarians! We have two videos for you to cue up and enjoy over your lunch break today.
The first video is an episode of "Book Lust with Nancy Pearl" featuring Nancy in conversation with memoirist Paul Auster in which they talk about his latest, WINTER JOURNAL!
The second video is Shelf Awareness' Book Trailer of the Day for WE KILLED: The Rise of Women in American Comedy: A Very Oral History by Yael Kohen.
Be warned: The video itself is less that 2 minutes long, but time might get away from you as you spend the next few hours looking up clips from all your favorite comediennes...
Look, guys! Look!
This morning Talia received her copy of the first title reissued in the Book Lust Rediscoveries series presented by none other than Nancy Pearl! Talia agreed to do a little modeling for me and show off this fancy new-again novel.
The book is A GAY AND MELANCHOLY SOUND by Merle Miller, it has a really lovely cover, and I for one can't get my eyes off of that handsome Book Lust Rediscoveries logo of Nancy's profile (far right). It's just so charming!
