I'm back home from the ALA Conference. Although we were off to bit of a rocky start, everything picked up after the first day. It was so wonderful to see some of my favorite authors such as Norton Juster, Susan Patron, Brian Selznick, David Levithan, and Linda Sue Park.
The Caldecott/Newbery Medal acceptance speeches were beyond awesome. There wasn't a dry eye in the house. Check out School Library Journal's review of the event at slj.com.
