Hello readers! We're officially back and happily exhausted after a great TxLA conference in Fort Worth. We had a blast with our Texan librarian friends, but it's time to look onward to the next conferences and events. Below are a few upcoming events that you need to get on the list for now so you don't miss out.

Booklist Webinar:

It's time to register for the Booklist's "Thrilling Mysteries: Can’t-Miss Crime Fiction for Spring" webinar which is TOMORROW at (CORRECTION!) 2pm EDT. It's going to be killer.

BookExpo America:

Request seating at the AAP's Annual BEA Librarians Dinner with Erica Jong, author of FEAR OF FLYING, which will take place on Wednesday, May 29th at 6pm in the Yale Club of NYC (there is a separate dinner for childrens' librarians; info on the same page).
