The Grand Armada—Agency Author News

June 27, 2011

Great write-up about Dan Savage's keynote speech to the ALA in this week's Publishers Weekly. The article's author, Andrew Richard Albanese, said the speech "entertained, moved, and captivated."

Here's a snippet:

[Dan Savage] praised librarians for offering the kinds of books that can help kids struggling with their sexuality, being bullied by classmates, rejected by their families and their churches, and portrayed libraries as a safe haven for many kids. As for why he turned his Internet-based effort into a book (published by Dutton in March) Savage drew applause, telling librarians "I'm a print guy, and books are magic."
