Many in Book World Join Women's Marches

Many members of the book industry across the country participated in the Women's Marches held on Saturday, and as the American Library Association Mid-Winter Meeting and Exhibits got underway in Atlanta, Ga., some attendees ducked out to attend the city's march. Among our favorite signs seen in photos from the marches: "Librarians for Facts," "Book Clubs Against Bigots," "Make Margaret Atwood Fiction Again," "Women Who Read Are Dangerous" and "Women Are Literally the Best."
