Its time for the ALA’s Midwinter Conference! Held in Chicago from January 30th through February 3rd at McCormick Place West, this is the kickoff event of the year for anyone passionate about books, libraries and to see what’s in store for the future of the industry.
Jeff will be involved in two sessions during the conference: Friday January 30th at the Booklist Author Forum from 4:00pm-5:15pm and on Saturday February 1st at the Freedom to Read Foundation event taking place from 7:00pm-9:00pm. See schedule for locations.
For the Booklist forum, Jeff will be joined by Francoise Mouly, Cece Bell and Gene Luen Yang as they dig into all things graphic novels. For the Freedom to Read Foundation session, Jeff was invited to be the speaker for this year’s special event as BONE was one of the most challenged or banned books of 2014. After his talk, there will be a brief Q&A followed by a book signing.
