Audiobooks at ALA

First of all, don’t forget about our contest to win a copy of My Sister’s Keeper on CD! Contest ends Monday, July 13 at 12:00PM Eastern.

If you’re attending ALA this year (click here if you still need a pass to the exhibit hall!), be sure to check out the audiobook events and stay tuned to @recordedbooks for some giveaways.. After visiting Recorded Books at Booth #4823, check out these discussions where our friend Mary Burkey (AKA Audiobooker) will be a panelist:

Alan Sitomer, creator of the Alan Sitomer BookJam, will be joining Laurie Halse Anderson and Jacqueline Woodson for a presentation on Saturday, 7/12 from 10-1:00 for the President’s Program: Literacy Leadership and Librarian Flair—Engaging 21st-Century Readers with Three Award Winning YA and CH Authors. Attendees will get the inside scoop on how to grasp, excite, and engage today’s young readers.

Also on Monday, 7/13, is the awards ceremony for this year’s Odyssey Award Winner, our very own The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. According to Mary Burkey, this ceremony will be the place to be on Monday if you want to catch a glimpse of the YA elite!

If you catch any of these presentations, we’d love it if you’d leave a comment here or send us a tweet or twitpic! We’ll have a few competitions going on during the day on Monday. Also be sure to say hello to the RB schools rep, Angie Crouse, at booth #4823! So keep your eyes on the RB twitter!
