OK, so I don't know if there will be cupcakes but I had to do something to get your attention.

Please check out the Pacific NW Booksellers Association trade show webpage and consider attending. This year the librarian track educational sessions have been planned by real, live, local Oregon library staff and we have an amazing line-up. Session topics include The Great Readalike by panelists who presented at the Book Expo in NYC; Kindles, Kobos, and Nooks, Oh My!, a session by e-book experts (well, we all own one and know how to use them) that will include up-to-the-minute information and will include a "petting zoo" so you can play with various e-devices; and a session on kid and teen lit by Northwest authors presented by a Portland librarian and Seattle book buyer.

But I've saved the best for last. Nora Rawlinson, founder of Early Word (and former LJ and PW editor-in-chief), will be presenting the session Smart Book Buying for Libraries and Bookstores. Her co-panelists will be Rick Simonson, head book buyer from Elliott Bay Book Company, and the collection development librarians from Tualatin and Sno-Isle libraries.

You can find more information on the following web page including the Top Ten Reasons Librarians Should Attend along with registration form.


The show will be October 13-15 (educational sessions on Thursday, the 13th) at the Portland Airport Holiday Inn.

I hope to see you there! And maybe, just maybe, there will something made of cake somewhere in the building.
