Adventures at the American Library Association Conference

Snoopy was in San Francisco for the festivities.

This weekend the American Library Association hit San Francisco for it's annual conference featuring tons of writers, books and library technology. Mystery Playground was on-hand working the Sisters in Crime booth talking with librarians about the We Love Libraries $1000 lottery grant. It was great to see Cari Dubiel of the ABC Book Review podcast who was running the booth this year. 

Here are Robin Burcell and Kelli Stanley before signing books in the Sisters in Crime booth. I especially love Kelli's Miranda Corbie books and Robin's Kate Gillespie series. 

Here's award winning author Catriona McPherson in the Midnight Ink booth signing her new book that comes out this September, The Child Garden. I love her Dandy Gilver series and her Midnight Ink books. 

This one has a serious spooky cover...

Here's New York Times bestselling author, Juliet Blackwell signing her new standalone mainstream novel, The Paris Key. This book comes out September 1 from NAL and it looks fabulous. Juliet also has two wonderful cozy mystery series, one called the Haunted Home Renovation series and the Witchcraft mysteries. She's been researching poison clothes for the Witchcraft series books she's working on. That sounds like so much fun.

Remember Cliff Notes? These buttons are so adorable.

We'll have part two of Adventures at the ALA on Tuesday, so come on back...
