Don’t Miss Out

Librarians have the opportunity to win some very cool book-related prizes:

1) Trip to London! — Deadline, 9/17 — to celebrate the paperback publication of Audrey Niffenegger’s Her Fearful Symmetry, literary agent Regal Literary is sponsoring a trip to London, which includes a tour of Highgate Cemetary lead by Audrey Niffenegger. A separate blogger’s prize is lunch with a Regal Literary agent and an editor from one of NYC’s top trade houses (what an opportunity for an aspiring writer). To win that one, you must write a review of 250 words or more (positive or negative).

2) $200 gift certificates each for 50 reading groups — Deadline, 8/31 — Celebrating their 10th anniversary, asks groups to share their Top 10 Favorite Discussion Books. 50 winners will receive a $200 gift card to a retailer of their choice — which, in keeping with the 10th anniversary theme, totals $10,000. Be sure to tell your book groups (they’ve created special printable flyers for libraries so you can hand them out to your groups).

3) 50 copies of Frommer’s Guides and a visit from Arthur Frommer — Deadline, 9/30 — for the library display that best answers the question, “How do you travel with Frommer’s?”
