Booklist Goes to Midwinter


Hey, Midwinter attendees! In one short week, we here at Booklist will be heading to Seattle for ALA’s Midwinter Meeting. Catch us at booth #815, where you can score Booklist buttons, Book Club Central pins, sweet temporary tattoos, and tiny chocolate versions of this year’s Carnegie shortlist titles. We’ll also be hosting flash giveaways all weekend long; two times a day, lucky attendees will be awarded a complete set of this year’s Carnegie finalists (six books total!). Make sure you’re following us on Twitter (@ALA_Booklist) for the latest updates.

And that’s not all! As always, you can stock up on copies of the latest issues of Booklist and Book Links, our supplemental magazine for educators and librarians—and, for a limited time only, you can purchase a special midwinter subscription to Booklist for just $75 (a 55% savings).
