Last week the Public Library Association conference was held in Indianapolis. Over 5000 librarians came to attend programs, workshops and the trade show. Luminis was there! We had signings by authors Laurie Gray, Chris Katsaropoulos and Tracy Richardson.

Luminis also sponsored a YA Author event with fellow Indiana publisher Tanglewood ~ Cultivating Resiliency Through Books for Teens ~ featuring Indiana authors Tracy Richardson, Laurie Gray and Tanglewood Indiana author, Mike Mullin. Over 100 librarians came at 4:15 on a Friday afternoon to hear how addressing difficult subjects like drinking and sexual abuse in books empowers teens by allowing them to experience them through the safety of a book while gaining valuable insights and skills.
