I am reposting the initial announcement about Librarians' Day. This is a full day continuing education event for ALL LIBRARY WORKERS. We have bestselling authors, reviewers, library workers from all over the country, and more. The focus is horror but the information is about collection development, readers' advisory, and programming. And it is only $75. Details below:
Today I am announcing the lineup for the 5th Annual StokerCon Librarians Day. This year Librarians' Day is included in the price of attending the full StokerCon. For $75 [which is usually the price for just Librarians' Day] you will have access to all programming from May 20-23.
May 21, 2021
10am - 7pm Eastern
