LJ Launches Editors’ Picks Webcasts

One of my favorite events of the year is LJ‘s Day of Dialog, held the day before BookExpo America (notification of this year’s event is coming soon). And one of my favorite panels at Day of Dialog is the perennial Editors’ Picks panel—an opportunity to hear the folks who actually select and publish books discuss their forthcoming favorites. I’ve always wished that we could expand this panel to other venues throughout the year, so that those who can’t attend BEA can still benefit from hearing editors talk about books in discussion. And now it’s happening. On Tuesday, March 19, from 3:00 to 4:00 pm ET, LJ will launch its Editors’ Picks webcasts with key editors from HarperCollins, Macmillan, and Random House. Registration is opening today; if it’s not up at this moment, check back once you’ve had your afternoon coffee break!
