Welcome to the 2013 American Library Association Conference!
In beautiful, cool Chicago!
You know you are at a library conference when you see ads like these.
I met lots of wonderful librarians.
Can you identify which person in this picture is a librarian?
I think you can.
Happy to see some people come suitably attired to ALA.
A little jazz.
Some librarians can really get down.
Long lines for authors.
But who cares if you are in a long line when you can make new friends?
Another round of "I Love My White Shoes," please!
Some librarians accumulated a lot of ribbons.
But what do we come for? Right, the authors.
Here are authors Lois Lowry and Tamora Pierce.
The Pinkneys sign simultaneously.
Authors Marilyn Singer and Jarrett Krosoczka. So much fun!
The bottom line?
A hefty 225 books scored!
