LibraryThing party in Boston

If you'll be in Boston this Saturday, January 16th , come to our LibraryThing Meetup!

We're taking advantage of the American Library Assocation conference in Boston to pull together all our favorite bibliophiles, eat food, drink drinks, and talk about the state of books, the future of the book, and what you just finished reading.

We're having it at The Green Dragon Tavern—a nice fit, as "The Green Dragon" is one of the most active groups on LibraryThing.

In true LibraryThing tradition we'll be providing ALL THE BAKED BRIE YOU CAN HANDLE, along with other light fare, perhaps including some that don't revolve around cheese. Since we're not doing ConferenceThing,* we've got some money to burn, and can offer a snack-y dinner instead. You buy the beer.

Date: January 16th, 2010
Time: 5:30-8:00 pm
Location: The Green Dragon (see Local event) – 11 Marshall St Boston, MA 02108
Updates: Follow @conferencething or @librarythingtim on Twitter

Directly after our event there's a tweetup for ALA conference-goers at the same location. We like to keep our 2.0 events convenient!

*Our original plan was to have ConferenceThing, a mini-conference giving librarians and bibliophiles a chance to talk about books in all their forms, and the book world. That didn't work out, as we couldn't find speakers and in a choice between hearing Tim speak in front of a projector and watching Tim and Abby shovel brie...

Thanks to merelymel for the photo.

What a great event this will be! Unfortunately, there's no way I could make it cross-country to visit, but it's very touching to see it held at the Green Dragon. Thanks for creating such a great site that's provided a home to so many of us. :)

Sadly, I too have other plans - Arisia, across the river in Cambridge. Sci-fi, book friendly, nerdapalooza. Y'all would fit in well there.

I would love to go, but I'm not sure if it's worth 3 hours each way. And driving in Boston.

That sounds great! The venue choice is excellent. I wish we could have something like this in Philadelphia; you have a lot of members out our way.

Have fun, guys!
