The librarian blogs and Twitter feeds I read are full of anticipation for ALA, kicking off today in Anaheim.
Librarians and the people who love libraries and books, all gathering together, meeting and having great discussions about the field. I haven’t gone to a conference yet, but I’d really like to go. Maybe midwinter.
Of course, I have plenty of books to read. The YA Genre lit class is winding down, which makes me sad. But it was full of interesting discussion, and book recommendations. And I started a website about historical fiction. I suspect it’ll take on a life of its own after class.
But I think I need to take a literary trip of some kind in July or August. A weekend jaunt with a bag of books and a good literary discussion.
