It is that time of the year when thousands of librarians gather for the American Library Association Annual Conference. This year we go to Anaheim, California, to enjoy exciting programs and meetings.
I am looking forward to see all my fabulous colleagues! I am speaking at a few events, Chairing a committee; also serving as ALA Councilor, and Immediate Past Chair of the Intellectual Freedom Round Table. I, like many others, will be busy, but below are some highlights of my schedule…and a few other events. I am sure I will add more events and meetings. (Look at the conference program for more great events; I am just featuring a number of them.) Let’s talk! Reach me via email, text or the usual social media.
