Dispatches from the 2019 Asian American Literature Festival
Earlier this month, I attended the 2019 Asian American Literature Festival in DC. Though that makes it sound incorrectly clinical or too matter-of-fact—I didn’t just attend this gathering of writers, poets, readers, creators, but rather the speakers took up space in my mind. Their words ricocheted between my ears. I felt seen, I felt understood, I felt inspired, I felt challenged.

Dispatches from StokerCon 2019
StokerCon is the annual conference held by the Horror Writers Association, culminating in the Bram Stoker Awards. With just over 400 participants, it’s a smaller event, but the daily schedule (which ran from 8 a.m. to midnight) was filled with an impressive number of sessions, panels, and activities.

Confessions of a first-time ALA attendee
I’ve been working in libraries for almost a decade but have never been able to go to the annual ALA conference due to family, school, or work obligations. My luck changed this year after joining NoveList this past July. It’s my job to talk with libraries, so it was my job to go to ALA!

Come see us at ALA 2019!
Librarians, including librarians from NoveList, are converging on Washington D.C. for the ALA Annual Conference. It’s been almost ten years since ALA was in D.C. and there’s a ton of new stuff to see (outside of the conference programming). We hope that you’ll also take the time to stop by the EBSCO Booth #2533 in the Exhibit Hall and get some insider information on what’s new and forthcoming from NoveList.

With my people at ALAMW19
It’s been a minute since I worked in a library but when I go to a conference, it doesn’t take me long to get back into full-on librarian mindset –trolling publishers’ booths for hot-n-fresh ARCs, failing to resist picking up cool swag, and fangirling over authors.
