New Star Wars fictions, Chronicle Books and More

From June 26th to 29th, I enjoyed the many festivities at American Library Association’s 2015 Annual Conference in San Francisco.  Here are some photos with captions (click on the first photo to see the slideshow with full captions!)

Star Wars retold for Middle Grade readers — from Disney Publishing Worldwide.  The four authors of the upcoming (and already published) books are: Tony DiTerlizzi, Alexandra Bracken, Adam Gidwitz, and Tom Angleberger.

Chronicle Books invited us to check out their amazingly beautiful, open, and creative work space!  I found out that there is an entire Industrial Design department, creating merchandise connected to the books they publish.  Too fun!

Of course, there were many other events, sessions, workshops that I didn’t take a lot of pictures of — The Coretta Scott King Awards Breakfast, the ALSC Preconference highlighting and celebrating this year’s Honored books (Caldecott, Newbery, Sibert, Geisel, Carnegie), Newbery/Caldecott/Wilder Banquet, and the ALSC Awards ceremony (Sibert, Geisel, Carnegie, Batchelder.)
