The Overlook Press was excited to be a first-time exhibitor at this year's ALA Annual Conference in Washington, DC. 13,000 librarians in a huge conference center in our nation's capital--what's not to love?
We were excited to have Robert L. Forbes, author of Let's Have a Bite! A Banquet of Beastly Rhymes there with us, signing copies of his new book for the show's resident rock stars--children's librarians.
If you follow us on Twitter (@overlookpress!) you've already seen lots of our pictures from ALA, but here are a few for you to enjoy that are slightly higher quality than those taken on a BlackBerry.
Thanks again, ALA, for a fantastic event!
Our display of Beastly Feasts!, Let's Have a Bite!, and a menagerie of classic and modern animal crackers.

Some of Robert Forbes' librarian friends from Palm Beach, FL--they were instrumental in getting us to the conference and helping us prepare for it.
