Penguin Random House Canada Young Readers is exhibiting at ALA Annual this year in New Orleans! Please say “hello” to our amazing Associate Director of Marketing & Publicity, Vikki VanSickle. Give our Marketing & Publicity Manager, Sylvia Chan, a high five. And greet our Publisher, Tara Walker, with a fresh beignet at booth #2048. Actually, they’ll all take a beignet if you offer them. In exchange, they will be happy to tell you about our 2018 books or to answer any questions you may have and load your arms with lots of great giveaways!
From our Spring 2018 list, we still have lots of Winter Is a Scream buttons featuring four of our spooky middle-grade novels including The Strange and Deadly Portraits of Bryony Gray and The Dark Missions of Edgar Brim: Monster. We also have From the Heart of Africa art cards, Sakura’s Cherry Blossoms postcards, Tilly and Tank posters, Trampoline Boy posters, Petra magnets, and Peanut Butter and Jelly place mats.
Check out our Summer 2018 books and pick up some Anne’s Colors and Anne’s Numbers art cards, Blood Will Out bookmarks, Clara Voyant horoscope bookmarks, Red Sky at Night posters, Hedgehog door hangers, and If a Horse Had Words art cards! Seriously, there’s a lot of goodies at our booth!
Then, there’s an early look at our Fall 2018 list. We have some handy luggage tags featuring Anne Arrives, bookmarks for The Ghost Road, posters for Go Show the World and Goodnight, Anne. There’s also this fabulous chore wheel for Sir Simon: Super Scarer. What about ARCs? Well, we’ll be handing out ones for Confessions of a Teenage Leper and Kens.
Wait, that’s not all! We have author signings in our booth too. Copies of the books are complimentary, but it’ll only be available while quantities last. So come early to make sure you don’t miss out.
