BookExpo Day!

It’s like my Christmas and birthday rolled into one. I’ve got my comfy Doc Martens on, and hitting the floors of the Jacob Javits Center, in search of the best upcoming kidlit. So far, I met Brian Selznick, who’s done the art for the updated covers fornthe Harry Potter series, and I only fangirled a little bit.

I dropped by Capstone’s booth to say hello to Saadia Faruqi, author of Here’s Yasmin!, which I adore and will gush over in a separate review. She was away, but I’ll be back, because I’m dying to tell her how much I love her book.

Jen Calonita signed her new Misfits book; she’s interested in coming back to my library, so I need to start nudging my program department ASAP. Squee!

There are great books coming our way in the Summer and Fall. More as I go!


I'm a mom, a children's librarian, bibliophile, and obsessive knitter. I'm a pop culture junkie and a proud nerd, and favorite reads usually fall into Sci-Fi/Fantasy. I review comics and graphic novels at WhatchaReading ( I'm also the co-founder of On Wednesdays We Wear Capes (, where I discuss pop culture and geek fandom from a female point of view.
