American Library Association, here we come!

June 28, 2024 / More →

We're so excited to return to the beautiful city of San Diego twice this summer, and we're kicking that off this weekend! Our team will be spending some quality time with some of our most fervent supporters, the librarians of the American Library Association! 

If you're attending ALA this year, we can't wait to connect with you at booth #1625. Rumor has it that there may even be an advance copy of the long-awaited Moon and Serpent Bumper Book of Magic at our table that can be viewed with the right incantation. (And by that we mean “ask us nicely and we'll give you a little peek!”)

If you aren't attending this year, this is a great weekend to visit your local library and check out the amazing things they have on offer! Keep an eye on our social media channels for updates from ALA Annual, as well.
