Image of the Day: Booksellers on Parade

Children's Institute 6, in New Orleans, La., kicked off last night with an opening reception and the first CI costume contest ("come as your favorite kids' book character"). ABA CEO Oren Teicher welcomed everyone, noting that there were "300 booksellers attending, from 36 states--187 of them for the first time." The winners were chosen in a variety of categories, and prizes included gift baskets from publishers and a party for the winner's store. The conference continues with two full days of programming and numerous speakers, including Chelsea Clinton.
