It's great to get out of the library for the day and spend time with co-workers, colleagues, authors, illustrators and booksellers. It's a good reminder of what makes librarianship a great profession!
Here's a peek at my goodies from BookExpo America! I can't wait to spend some time looking them all over. Books, I will read, review and give away to lucky children participating in my library's summer reading program. Posters and other goodies will also be used in the library for decoration or prizes. What am I keeping? A few good bags, a flash drive (I really need an extra one), and this lovely sketch from the lovely and talented Rebecca Guay. Ms. Guay is the illustrator for the upcoming graphic novel by Jane Yolen, The Last Dragon (Dark Horse, Sep 2011). (If you can't wait for it, request it now from NetGalley.)

oops! That circle of light is from my window. It's a beautiful
day here in the East.
