This Week’s Theme:
Reasons I Love Attending Book Events/Conferences
(feat. Book Expo America)
Many entries this week may feature swoon-worthy romances that give all the feels but with the coming and going of many book events as of late (e.g. Book Expo America, American Library Association Conference, Ontario Library Association Super Conference), I thought I’d depart from the main prompt to glimpse into nostalgia and up-vote book events being a rad experience and why you should consider going if you have the resources to attend.
I should also preface this post to say that for many industry events, the focus is for librarians and educators. Not saying it always is, but bloggers and other influencers need to be mindful of that fact.
For the purposes of this post, I’ll be highlighting standout moments from Book Expo America 2017.
