RWA Librarians Day Recap

I attended my first RWA event last week in New York. While I didn’t get to go to the whole conference, I was lucky enough to get a ticket for Librarians Day.

The first panel was on romantic suspense and I really enjoyed it. There were some great authors on the panel including Jayne Ann Krentz, Carla Neggers, and Rebecca Zanetti, who I’ve read before, and a few like D.D. Ayers, Mary Burton, Laura Kaye, and Wendy Corsi Straub, who I haven’t read but am looking forward to checking out after hearing them talk.

The other two panels were on holiday romance and what editors from some of the big publishers are looking forward to coming out later this year. Neither of these panels were particularly good to me but others in the room seemed to really enjoy both.

My only complaint was about the panel on creating effective partnerships. It was not well planned. It would have been better to just let us talk to each other in small groups rather than try to keep reconvening us every five minutes to report back to the whole room. It didn’t allow for very good discussion or ideas.

Overall, I’m glad that I went to see what it was all about and I’d go again if the opportunity was there.
