ALA Midwinter Day 3 #alamw17

23 Jan

After going to bed early, I woke up energetic. Go me!

The day started and ended with Macmillan. I had a 6:45 a.m. breakfast and a dinner at a seafood restaurant this evening. The breakfast was large and showcased all kinds of books and was a formal presentation. The dinner was fancier, but the books were on our tables. Macmillan editors and marketing staff sat with smaller groups of conference attendees and it was just a lovely evening of intelligent conversation.

In between, I had a hilarious presentation by Scholastic. Gordon Korman, Madelyn Rosenberg, Wendy Wan-Long Shang, and Natasha Tarpley, did live readers’ theater presentations of parts of each of their books. It was laugh out loud funny!

From there I went to a Penguin Random House luncheon where more new titles were presented.

I took some time after wards to rest up before my first 2018 Sibert Committee meeting. We mostly introduced ourselves, got to know each other and talked logistics, but it fueled my excitement for working on the committee.

It will be another early mooring so I can check out before the Youth Media Awards.  I will attend the YALSA’s 2017 Morris/Nonfiction Award presentations afterwards.

I am scheduled to fly out mid afternoon but the weather is looking a bit dodgy. Please send thoughts and prayers. I’ve had lots of fun  and learned a lot, but I am looking forward to getting home again. I miss my Lucy.
