I leave for ALA Annual tomorrow! It’s in Anaheim this year, which will either be amazing or terrible. We’re not staying in Disneyland, but we do have a cocktail party and dinner in Downtown Disney, and if we finish setting up early I think we’ll be able to spend an afternoon in the park.
Annual is awesome because it’s HUGE(!) and filled with RAD LIBRARIANS(!) and so many great AUTHORS(!) and the NEWBERY/CALDECOTT BANQUET(!!) The banquet was my favorite part of last year’s Annual. The added bonus is that because A Ball for Daisy won the Caldecott we got to design the programs for the event. They are going to blow yo’ mind!
I’m going as Work!Alex and Author!Alex, so if you see me wandering around say hey! And if I’m working in our booth, come get galleys from me!
