New Voices New Rooms, our SIBA/NAIBA trade conference , brings you five days of events to plug into your schedule and enjoy, learn from, and share with your colleagues. For your ease getting into events, please register for each event asap rather than day of, and download the events right into your calendar. Each event has a different Zoom link, so your prep now will make your experience later much easier! Make sure to register for the conference first as your key to entrance to the show, the equivalent of getting your show badge. Please take five minutes to scroll through the schedule and begin to plan your week (CYOA!).
Beginnings and endings are so meaningful, and we crafted this show with powerful intention. The result? It’s bookended by two beautiful events you won’t want to miss. We begin on Monday, Sept 21 at 8:30AM with All Because You Matter with Tami Charles and Bryan Collier, the author and illustrator of All Because You Matter. Their book is “a lyrical, heart-lifting love letter to black and brown children everywhere: reminding them how much they matter, that they have always mattered, and they always will, from powerhouse rising star author Tami Charles and esteemed, award-winning illustrator Bryan Collier.” The conversation will be moderated by Liza Baker, VP and Publisher of Cartwheel and Orchard Books, Scholastic Inc.
We close the show on
Friday, Sept 25 at 6PM with The Way Forward: Meeting Crisis with Creativity. Rockstar authors and mentors
Ann Patchett, Elizabeth Gilbert, and Glennon Doyle will be in conversation about our present moment and the theme of creative response to crisis, followed by a lively Q & A from attending booksellers. Finding and supporting creative responses during such difficult times can often be the work that not only helps our businesses survive, but also saves us personally. Please join us as at our final event for #NVNR2020 and let’s do this important work together. And then celebrate.
