The picture book Just In Case You Want to Fly, written by Julie Fogliano and illustrated by Christian Robinson (Neal Porter Books/Holiday House), was voted BuzzBooks contest winner by booksellers and librarians at the 2019 Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Tradeshow, Oct. 6-8, in Portland, OR.
About 200 punch cards were handed out to attendees who visited seven exhibits for publisher quick-pitches on titles from a variety of genres.
Attendee booth stops were verified with a stamp from the attending reps, and once all stamps were accounted for, participants voted for the book they were most excited to recommend to patrons of Northwest libraries and
An inspirational book for anyone—parent or child—looking for support when facing a new challenge.
That’s a sentiment both booksellers and customers can get behind. Just In Case You Want to Fly will be on prominent display throughout NW indies this fall as a featured title of the Give Books holiday catalog campaign. The author and illustrator did a store event and a school visit with Portland’s Green Bean Books while they were in town from New York and San Francisco respectively.
