in New Orleans @ ALA

I have been so busy here at ALA's Annual Conference in New Orleans, that I haven't had much time to post.  However, you can check out the ALSC blog for what's new at the conference.  I've been blogging for them daily.

In a nutshell, here are some highlights
  • New Orleans is a wonderful city! The people, the weather (yes, I like to be hot!), the food, the sights - fantastic!
  • Dan Savage was moving as he spoke to a huge crowd about It Gets Better.
  • Jeff Kinney is as funny in person as he is in The Wimpy Kid series.
  • Rick Riordan and his panel of colleagues were entertaining and informative. More Percy Jackson GNs are on the way.  The Kane Chronicles will be a trilogy.  The Son of Neptune will be out in October. There is a very cool new ALA READ poster by John Rocco on the way soon!
  • Did I mention the food is awesome?
