New Issue of The Corner Shelf is Available

The newest issue of Booklist’s The Corner Shelf is available with this link.  As usual, it is a treasure trove of information for that space where the work we do with leisure readers and the effort we put into developing our collections meet.

Here is the intro editor Rebecca Vnuk has for the newsletter.
What do drag queens and banned books have in common? More than you might think. Misha Stone and Jared Mills report on "Banned! Books in Drag at SPL," a look at a successful outreach event that found librarians rubbing elbows with drag queens at a Seattle nightclub, all in the name of good reads. Our "Notes from the Field" interview this month features Rita Meade, aka Screwy Decimal. You may know her from her blog of the same name, her Twitter feed (@ScrewyDecimal), or her fabulous children's programming at Brooklyn (NY) Public Library. While you're waiting for the comeback tour of Lost in the Stacks, the library rock band she sings with, take a read and see what else she's been up to (hint: it's a lot!).
This issue also features our biannual "Professional Reading Roundup" to help you stay up-to-speed on the latest Booklist Online exclusive reviews of professional reading titles; and a look at how Baker & Taylor can help you with your A/V collection. ("At the Corner of Baker & Taylor”).
As always, I want to know what you'd like to read about in Corner Shelf. Feel free to contact me at rvnuk@ala.org.
