Midwinter ’14: Get Those Galleys

StampedeFriday night’s Grand Opening Reception in the exhibits hall has turned into a galley stampede (please, people, have sympathy for the library marketers. They’re tired from days of stacking galleys in their booths). The same is true for the “Spotlight on Adult Literature” on Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m., when publishers feature special giveaways (a good opportunity to find out what titles the publishers hope libraries will give special attention).

You don’t have to suffer the crowds. Various publishers offer buzz sessions, opportunities to hear what the library marketers are excited about and to pick up galleys in a more relaxed setting. You could spend the entire conference in the Book Buzz Theater (we sincerely hope the listing for the first session on Saturday, at 3:30 a.m., is an error!).

NOTE: Please RSVP for the following, to help ensure they have enough galleys for the crowd.
