#ALAAC15 – Day 1

26 Jun

Yesterday was  a great but stressful day. I dropped off the dogs, got myself ready and to the airport in good time. Waiting for my flight I ran into Gregory, the librarian at Jesuit HS in Portland. It turns out he is chairing the YALSA Nonfiction Award this year. I’ve let my membership in OASL ( Oregon Association of School Libraries) lapse so he told me of the local librarians he knew of that would also be in SF this week. I will keep my eyes peeled for them.

I landed in SF and took BART to the Civic Center stop, then walked to the B&B  I’m staying at. It is the very cute building with the orange ground level.

I am up in the 3rd floor. I am staying in SOMA, which is a gritty urban area.After settling in, I checked my messages, and learned my Dad, who has been hospitalized for a broken hip, now has pneumonia and things are not looking good. I told my family to let me know if I need to radically alter these vacation plans. I Skyped with my twin sister who said Dad would hate to me to leave and she will let me know if I need to go.Please send any prayers or positive thoughts you can spare. My dad could sure use them.

So, I walked around a bit after settling in. I ventured down to the Yerba Buena Gardens .

They are right near the Moscone Center, which is festooned with manners announcing ALAAC15.

I have a quiet morning then things start picking up around 2:30, when I have my first publisher event. But more on that later.
