ALA Midwinter 2012

I purchased my tickets for ALA Midwinter -- just in time to still get the early discount. I always enjoy going to American Library Association conventions. It's a great way to see authors, preview upcoming book releases, and connect with other librarian friends and colleagues around the country.

John Green is one of the featured speakers t
his year. I must admit, I haven't read many of his books, but I do really enjoy the Vlog Brothers videos that he and his brother Hank Green create.

This is going to be the closest ALA conference to me for a while, for t
he next several years they're being hosted in various West Coast cities, or up north in the middle of winter. The conference returns to Florida in 2016, and comes to Atlanta in 2017.

  1. That's great! I'm going to PLA in March and BEA. I went to ALA last year and had a great time and networking.

  2. Plus it's always great to be able to go south in the winter. Not that Texas can't be cold in January, but it's a near sight warmer than most of the US that time of year!

  3. Yeah, you couldn't pay me to go north in the winter. Brrr! I hate the cold.
