Where My ALA Philadelphia Peoples At?
Today I am in Philadelphia for the Mid-Winter ALA Conference. I suspect that perhaps many of you children’s literary enthusiasts are there as well. How delightful! We should really meet up. Of course, I probably should have mentioned this earlier. Hm. Poor planning on my part. In any case there’s a Kidlit Lunch on Saturday, organized by Reader’s Carousel. If you are interested in going, let her know. You can find additional details at Tea Cozy. I may try to stop by if I get a chance.
For those of you on the go and without the spare time needed to hear about who wins the ALA Awards on Monday, Jennifer Schultz alerted me to the fact that you can now have the winners texted to you. It’s winners only, though, so if you want to know about the Honor books you’ll have to wait to find out.
I’ll do some small posts while I’m gone, but nothing too exciting.
See you after the ALA Award results pour in!
