Library Journal Day of Dialog

For more than two decades, Library Journal’s Day of Dialog has been the most anticipated librarian-only gathering of the year. Now it’s gone digital and is free to attend! The next all-day event is scheduled for September 25, and will feature a close-up look at the biggest forthcoming books from winter/spring 2021.

Once again, you’ll hear from top authors in genre fiction, literary fiction, and nonfiction and learn about more titles and trends from editors on our popular editors’ picks panel. And you still get to dialog by visiting virtual booths, talking with authors, and networking with colleagues.

We are anticipating an unprecedented number of library and education professionals to attend this event, so you may find the environment or live sessions become full during the day.

But fear not! All sessions and author chats will be available for viewing on-demand within an hour of their initial broadcast, and the entire event will be available on-demand until December 25, 2020.
