Coming to Boston for the ALA Midwinter conference? If you're a tweeting librarian, author, illustrator, publisher, agent, editor, reviewer, blogger, or anyone interested in children's and YA lit, join us! Talk social media, chat about books, share program ideas, meet the people you've been re-tweeting, listing, and following, see old friends.
We'll have a BOOK SWAP too -- so authors and publishers, bring a copy of your book(s) to display and share. This way, the great Kid/YA Lit book community can continue interacting after our tweet-up's over.
Invite your friends, too, but our capacity is 150, so register here and save your spot. Cash bar.
Not on Twitter yet? Sign up. It's fast and easy (here are some tips to getting started).
And no need to worry about New England winter weather, the Birch Bar is in the Westin Waterfront hotel connected to the convention center!
