NYLA’s Mystery Slam!

NYLA’s Mystery Slam!

mysterious girls

Thanks to all of the librarians who joined me yesterday at NYLA's Mystery Slam! I had a blast. I hope you all discovered some intriguing new titles and managed to enjoy a glass of wine (or two) during the event (I mean, the description really should have been: "buzzing and getting buzzed!").

I had a blast presenting with my co-panelists Kayleigh George (HarperCollins) and Cheryl Herman (Random House Books On Tape and Listening Library). I also owe a huge thanks (and probably a mountain of cookies) to Annie Mazes (HarperCollins) who drove Kayleigh and I upstate to the event! Thanks, girl!
