What could be better than a weekend talking about books with an entire convention center full of librarians, publishers, and creators? Based on my first experience at the American Library Association Annual Conference: not much!
It was such a pleasure to chat with everyone who came to my signing and to participate in the Booklist’s Middle Grade Mania panel. I still can’t get over how many people were there… and how many BOOKS! I can’t wait to read the treasures I picked up while walking the exhibit floor.
I’m very happy to be a part of such a warm and welcoming community. Thanks from the bottom of my heart to everyone who made the experience so special.
