Behind The Scenes: ALA Midwinter Meeting

The Blink team just returned from the 2017 ALA (American Library Association) Midwinter Meeting, and we had a blast! We had signings for five of our amazing authors-McCall Hoyle (The Thing with Feathers), Christina June (It Started with Goodbye), Heather Maclean (Toward a Secret Sky), Stephanie Morrill (The Lost Girl of Astor Street), and Kwame Alexander (Solo).

From great author signings to 1920s parties, the Blink team is thrilled to share photos from our time in Atlanta. We gave away hundreds of books to teens and librarians, and can’t wait to hear how much you all loved these books!
