Join Library Journal for the most anticipated librarian-only gathering of the year and take a close-up look at upcoming books and the latest trends in the library and publishing worlds. Attendees will listen in on hot author panels covering a range of topics including the top novelists for the fall/winter season; get the inside scoop on the best books of the year during the favorite and informative Editors’ Picks panel; and participate in our town hall meeting session to discuss the pressing issues impacting libraries today.

Attendees enjoy access to exclusive author signings, free ARCs, and an opportunity to network with colleagues from around the country in an intimate library-centric setting. We end the day with a closing reception with plenty of opportunities for networking with old friends and new while brushing shoulders with key people in the publishing world. This is a full day of the best and brightest dialog about books and libraries.

Here’s what librarians had to say about Day of Dialog 2014:

“Day of Dialog makes me feel like a kid in a candy store…authors, books, freebies, food, and friends & colleagues all talking about our profession! What better way to spend a day?!”
– Kip M. Roberson, Reuben Hoar Library

“If I could attend just one event all year, Day of Dialog would be it. Fascinating panels and talks by authors and professional editors and librarians, good food, and more ARCS and free books than one person can carry home, what could be better?”
– Anne Marie Clarke, Queens Library

“The LJ Day of Dialog always provides me with a reminder of why I became a librarian. It is a thoroughly satisfying professional experience.”
– Patricia Lowrey, Cleveland Public Library

“Without doubt, LJ Day of Dialog is the single-most valuable workshop I attend annually.”
– Janet Schneider, The Bryant Library

“Even if you’re not attending BEA, it’s worth it to travel to New York to attend Day of Dialog.”
– Kay Eldon, Newport Public Library
