I went to the TLA Conference in Austin last week.
Here are some of my favorite parts.
There are oodles of wonderful sessions at the conference. My favorite was hearing Texas authors and illustrators speak about their forthcoming books.
There is nothing like finding and obtaining a wonderful book at the conference that you can't wait to read. On the left is librarian Barbie Love, delighted in finding the latest book in Anne Bishop's World of the Others series. On the right is a group of happy students from a local school who were bussed to the event and were given autographed copies of the latest in the Beatrice Zinker series.
The best thing about the TLA conference is talking books with booksellers, librarians, authors, and fellow readers. I loved meeting all the wonderful authors, and I was happy to bring home over a hundred books from the conference.
Here's a little collage of some of the authors I met this year. I promise to post a little more about them later.

Can you tell that I had a marvelous time?
