Booklist Goes to Midwinter: 2020 Edition

Calling all ALA Midwinter attendees! Come next Friday, January 24, we’ll be manning booth #1014 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in the land of cheesesteaks (and the Declaration of Independence). Please stop by so we can equip you with seriously spectacular swag: there’ll be buttons! totes! temporary tattoos! new fortune tellers (the latest readers’-advisory origami will offer YA reading recs for the following categories: biographies and memoirs, romance, graphic novels, and horror)! There’ll also be bookmarks and complimentary 13 x 19 Book Hooks posters—it’s your favorite recurring Book Links column (featuring history-changing womenhumans helping animals, and SLIME), but big!

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). Make sure you’re following us on Twitter (@ALA_Booklist) for the latest updates.
