You’ll also want Mike Rogers’s guide to programs for librarians.

Speaking of all those free Advance Readers Copies, be sure to come to this session, debuting this year:

Saturday, 3:30–5 p.m.

Librarian’s Book Shout and Share (AAP) (Rm. 1E14)

Mike describes it in his own inimitable way:

New this year, essentially a big gabfest where librarians can fill one another in on what they saw/heard during the show and what they think the top forthcoming books/authors are as opposed to what publishers are trying to foist on them. Panelists include RA expert and LJ columnist Neal Wyatt, Brooklyn PL’s Barbara Genco, Baltimore County’s Lila Wisotzki, and others. Not to be missed.

And, I hope to see you at the annual AAP Author Breakfast (Saturday, 8 to 9 a.m.), which I have the honor of moderating this year.
