Writers Against Racism: National Diversity in Libraries Conference

My NDLC panel discussion went very well on Thursday. I’m actually in the process of looking at the videos for editing opportunities. In the meantime, please take a look at how one woman’s eyes were opened at NDLC2010.


  1. Please edit out all of my questionable moments. Its was a pleasure to finally meet you in person. Overall I think it went well. Though I was kicking myself on the flight home because when I mentioned Shine Cocount Moon by Meminger I forget to say it was set in NJ. I hate missing chances to tie books in like that.

    • Doret, it was a great pleasure meeting you and Edi. I am viewing the tapes and will put something ‘smashing’ together. :) I gobbled some of my thoughts, so I know what you mean. Then I saw the time was slated for 10:15 instead of 10:30! LOL You and Edi are tremendous, and I’ve learned so much. As far as the next conference I mentioned, I sent out an e-mail and will keep you posted if there’s a slot we can take. More later… xo

  2. Amy,
    I thought 10:30 as well! No matter, I really enjoyed presenting with you and Doret! I hope you’re getting increased traffic because the W.A.R. series really needs to be read!! Looking forward to hearing from you

  3. Thanks, Edi! You are an amazing presenter! thank you. I am working on the video, while on vacation. When it’s done, I’ll post it asap. Best regards! -Amy
