More DEMONKEEPER news!

DEMONKEEPER has been named to the New York Public Library’s Best Books for the Teen Age 2008 list! This list of recommended reading is published by the New York Public Library each year – and we’re excited that they’ve put DEMONKEEPER among the best where it belongs!

To mark the publication of this year’s edition of Books for the Teen Age, a reception will be held in the Celeste Bartos Forum, Humanities and Social Sciences Library, The New York Public Library, at Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street, on Saturday, March 22 from 12:30 pm to 4:00 pm. At 2:00 pm there will be a brief introduction and welcome with celebratory remarks by Robert Lipsyte, the author of Yellow Flag (Harper Teen, an imprint of HarperCollins).

It is an afternoon to celebrate the authors who have new books on the list and good reading in general. All of the titles will be displayed. In addition to our guest authors, others who attend include public and school librarians, teenagers, parents, and publishing representatives. Last year over 400 guests attended.

Each author will receive a name tag at the reception desk. Authors will be asked to stand for recognition and applause. They will not need to make a speech. Awards will also be presented to the teenage winners of the Books for the Teen Age Cover Design Contest. Light refreshments will be served following the presentation. This will be an afternoon for meeting friends, making new ones and talking about books.
