Book Camp & Picture Books

In our ongoing efforts to get out from behind our computer screens, we wanted to share a few links to some real life events.

On Saturday, we will be at Book Camp NY, so stop by and say hello: “Inspired by the hugely successful Book Camp Toronto, Book Camp NY is an unconference for smart, bookish people working in all different areas of publishing. Sessions will be suggested and hosted by attendees. If you’re looking to brainstorm an idea, spark a conversation, or learn something new, this is the place to do it. Check out guidelines for attendees here, and guidelines for hosts here. When: Saturday, December 4th, from 1-5 PM, followed immediately by a cocktail hour. Please arrive at 12:45 for check in.”

Next, this GalleyCat editor appeared on NHPR’s Word of Mouth show yesterday, talking about picture books for adults. Finally, Electric Literature co-founder Andy Hunter starred in this week’s edition of Media Beat, preparing the world for Mediabistro’s eBook Summit on December 15th at the New Yorker Hotel.
