We’ll be at ALA this weekend, will you?

I’m so happy to be heading to New Orleans this weekend to attend the 2018 American Library Association Annual conference.

ala badgeYou’ll be able to find Dominican University and Butler Center info at the ALISE booth (#3641) at the convention center.

You’ll be able to find me (or not find me) running around to all the amazing speakers and sessions that I have on my to-do list. Some of the places I’ll likely be found:

  • The Opening Session with Michelle Obama
  • Doris Kerns Goodwin’s Auditorium Speaker Series session
  • Bullying, Trolling, and Doxxing Oh My! Protecting our Advocacy and Public Discourse around Diversity and Social Justice
  • The Coretta Scott King Books Awards breakfast
  • 2018 ALSC Awards Presentation
  • ALSC Charlemae Rollins President’s Program: Considering All Children: A New Ideal in Evaluating and Engaging around Books for Youth
  • Anywhere and everywhere our generous publishing partners can be found in the exhibit hall. We have lots of people to thank for our amazing collection!

And, of course, enjoying some (ok—lots) of the amazing food and music to be found in NOLA!

Hope to see some of you there, but if not, I’ll post a quick recap next week—stay tuned.
