Welcome, ALA Atlanta Midwinter Meeting 2017!
We are excited to share our city with the American Library Association Midwinter Meeting 2017 this weekend!
Starting today Atlanta will be flooded with librarians, publishers, authors, illustrators, educators and book enthusiasts from across the country, who assemble together for a weekend of lectures, round table discussions, book signings, social events and more with book lovers just like them.
This year’s Meeting takes place at the Georgia World Congress Center downtown from Friday, January 20 to Tuesday, January 24.
The annual Midwinter event changes locations every year, and occurs months before the annual Conference, but it attracts professional in the industry and anyone excited to know more about it.
GAS-ART welcomes visitors and locals, and we encourage you to explore our shop full of autographed children’s books illustrated by R. Gregory Christie, including Freedom in Congo Square, which made the Notable Children’s Book 2017 Discussion List!
Take some time between sessions to come by our store. Peruse our selection of children’s books for your local library, family or friends, and check out our postcards, framed paintings and prints.
We are located inside North DeKalb Mall, which is easily accessible from downtown by MARTA.
We look forward to seeing you!
