Sunday, October 20th marks the official kickoff of this year's Princeton Reads.We're planning on seeing you at 10 am for the family fun garbage bag race (we're supplying the bags). The run commences at Princeton High School, and ends at the library where there will be a pep rally, and all sorts of fun activities.  

The perfect kind of date

Recently, a few PPL staff members had the good fortune to attend Book Expo America, an annual gathering of publishers, editors, booksellers, librarians and superfans of reading. It's sort of like fashion week for the book industry, where publishers pull out all of the stops in an effort to reveal and promote the books they are most excited about for the upcoming months.
