This week I’ll be heading off to the ALA Annual Conference in Anaheim (Twitter Hashtag #ala12).
It’s going to be a flurry of activity and meetings and exhibits, meeting friends, and getting the chance to meet online friends for the first time.
Here are some of my highlights:
ASCLA Web Presence Committee Meeting, Saturday, June 23, 2012 – 10:30am to 12:00pm. I’m chair of this committee.
Margaret A. Edwards Luncheon, Saturday, June 23, 2012 – 12:00pm to 2:00pm. It’s Susan Cooper! How could I not! Luckily, the Web Presence Committee is in the same hotel, so I can run and make it on time.
Fabulous Films for Young Adults Committee Meeting (YALSA), Saturday, June 23, 2012 – 4:00pm to 7:00pm. I’m a member of this committee. Unfortunately, this is the same time as the YALSA Happy Hour so I won’t be at the Happy Hour. I may be able to get to The Great YA Blogger Meet Up (Degrees Wine & Patio Bar at the Marriott, 8 pm on Saturday); to be honest, it depends on how tired I am after dinner.
YALSA’s YA Author Coffee Klatch, Sunday, June 24, 2012 – 9:00am to 10:00am. I’ve gone to this a few times in the past, and it’s always fun to meet the authors.
Michael L. Printz Program and Reception, Monday, June 25, 2012 – 8:00pm to 10:00pm. Personally speaking, I get the most out of this when I’ve read all the books. And I just realized I still haven’t read Jasper Jones! I guess that’s what my plane reading will be.
I hope to see you in Anaheim!
