New project from Against the Grain aims to help promote books and authors associated with the Charleston Library Conference and Against the Grain.
Introducing Books from Our Crowd, a new feature on the ATG NewsChannel website that will make it easier to discover books and authors associated with the Charleston Library Conference and Against the Grain. New books often get lost in the volume of materials that are released and promoted each month. The ATG NewsChannel selects a Book of the Week to highlight important works in the library and information industry, but there are many more that we aren’t able to recognize that have valuable ideas and contributions to the field.
“Our idea was to create a listing of works, searchable by author, title, and keyword, that are written by conference presenters or attendees, ATG contributors and subscribers, or people associated with either entity,” said Katina Strauch, Editor. “We hope this project helps draw attention to the broad spectrum of published works by authors who are near and dear to our hearts.”
