Lizzie Skurnick!

Some exciting news for tomorrow’s chat!


We have a special guest star, Lizzie Skurnick! Of Lizzie Skurnick Books, an imprint of Ig Publishing!

Lizzie Skurnick is the editor-in-chief of Lizzie Skurnick Books, which reissues the great classics of YA, from the 1930s through the 1980s. A columnist for The New York Times Magazine and a regular reviewer for NPR, she’s the author of Shelf Discovery, a memoir of teen reading.

The topic?


(Yes, this is the fourth, not the third Thursday in August — but hey, vacation and holidays meant we had to change it. Sorry for any inconvenience!)

Remember, tomorrow night, 8 PM EST

See you then!


Chat Transcript: Beach Reads

On July 25, 2013, we gathered for an hour to discuss Beach Reads — what are they? How do they differ from Vacation Reads? How do we find out what our patrons’ favorite beachy authors & themes are?

The Beach Reads chat Storify is available here.

Tonight, we’ll be joined by gory mystery/thriller aficionado & Macmillan Adult Library Marketing Director Talia Sherer to discuss Genre True Loves! Join us!
