Gene Ambaum writes "The rumors are true! Okay, there weren't any rumors. But it's still true. Last summer the American Library Association asked us to create a Read poster for them. To put this in perspective, previous Read posters feature Orlando Bloom, Nancy Pearl, Tony Hawk, Johnny Damon (Red Sox version), Batgirl, and Curious George. So it was quite a compliment. And it's quite a poster — a glossy full-color 36"x12" panorama of the Mallville Public Library, with the time-honored theme "Read Responsibly". Whether you buy it for your library, your bookstore, your school, your staff room, your cubicle, or your living room, we think you'll enjoy seeing your favorite Unshelved characters in action. And really, what better way to illustrate correct book-handling? To see the poster, go to www.overduemedia.com and look at This Blog Post. (ALA has an image in their store, but it's very small.) We hope readers and professionals alike will support the ALA by buying the Unshelved Read Responsibly poster at their online store or call 1-866-SHOP ALA. For anyone coming to the ALA Midwinter conference in Seattle later this month, we invite them to a special poster signing session at the Unshelved booth (#742) from 10am-noon on Saturday January 20th. We'll be around the rest of the time too, with a selection of Unshelved books, clothes, and personal care products."
