Nimbus celebrated its 40th anniversary with our second annual warehouse party on Wednesday, May 10th. Musician David Myles played an amazing set — his new children’s book, Santa Never Brings Me a Banjo, will be out in September.
The event took place during Eastbound, a conference highlighting east coast books and publishers. Librarians from across the country joined publishers and booksellers in discussions about ebooks, distribution, and promoting local books and authors. Simon Thibault, author of Pantry and Palate, MC’d the opening night party at Pier 21.
Delegates included Reference Editor Mahnaz Dar from School Library Journal, Sandra O’Brien from Canadian Children’s Book News, Sue Carter from Quill & Quire, Shelley Youngblut from the Calgary Wordfest, and others.
