Melville House at the American Library Association Conference in San Francisco


Melville House Publisher Dennis Johnson and Director of Library & Academic Marketing Claire Kelley attended the American Library Association Annual Conference from June 26-29 in San Francisco at the Moscone Convention Center. We gave advance reader copies of The Visitors and The Girl in the Red Coat to librarians who visited our booth, and had a series of wonderful events with Scott Sherman, author of Patience and Fortitude: Power, Real Estate, and the Fight to Save a Public Library, which had just been endorsed by Maureen Corrigan on NPR’s “Fresh Air” and generated a lot of discussion. See below for scenes from the conference, and sign up for our library newsletter here if you’re not already on it.
