Day 2 – #alamw18

10 Feb

I accomplished my goal of getting my badge before my 8 a.m. meeting. Here is the sign that greeted me outside the door of our room

Because our deliberations are secret, our doors were locked, we could exit, but had to knock to get back in.

And yes, there really is a locked trunk of books.

We met from 8-noon, then took an hour lunch break. We met again from 1-5, when we took a dinner break. I went over to the exhibit hall,but, after concentrating all day, it was too much. I saw a few friends, then took a little downtime in my room. We met for our third session of the day from 7-9.

Exhausted, I went back to my room.

Overall, it was a great day. Even though we are discussing nonfiction books, we laughed a lot!  Though maybe not as much as the Geisel committee. They are meeting in a room between our room and the women’s restroom. Every time I walk past their locked door, I hear laughter!

    It is so much fun to hear “behind the scenes” stuff like this! Have fun at ALA!
