PLA Highlight: Book Club Central Lunch & Learn

At the Public Library Association's 2018 conference in Philadelphia last week, we hosted a Book Club Central Lunch & Learn with our Sponsoring Partner United for Libraries and Booklist, and Corporate Platinum Partner Penguin Random House. Over two hundred librarians came to hear a panel led by Booklist's Donna Seaman that included authors Cristina Alger (The Banker's Wife) and Miriam Parker (The Shortest Way Home). Due to inclement weather librarians Bill Kelly (Cuyahoga County Public Library) and Kristin Friberg (Princeton Public Library, NJ) were unable to attend, but Susan Maguire, Senior Editor, Collection Management and Library Outreach at Booklist, was kind enough to step in and talk about her experience with book clubs in the decade she worked in public libraries. We also handed out copies of Sarah Jessica Parker's newest pick, Anatomy of a Miracle by Jonathan Miles (Hogarth, 2018).
