My 2011 ALA Conference Schedule

with 2 comments

If you are going to ALA and will be at any of these sessions, let me know! We can sit together, chat or grab coffee during down time. I would love to meet some of my virtual friends and as you can see below, I still have a variety of meals to plan. This will be my first conference with a smartphone (huzzah!) so I should be able to communicate a little better for last minute plans. Just send me an @reply or DM on Twitter to get in touch! Or let me know if you want to exchange numbers.

  1. Dorns! I wish I could meet up with you at ALA 😦 Will any of your presentations be floating around on the web? I’d love to see your Pecha Kucha, those are intimidating to make but always really great to see. Congrats on all of your professional activism. You’re really someone I admire and strive to emulate! P.S., Miss your face SEVERELY.

  2. Aw Ms. Main! Thank you for your kind words. I hope that someday our paths will cross, either in good ole’ ROC or at a library conference. I’m not sure if anything is being recorded, but I will let you know once I find out. Or maybe I’ll do blog posts or something post-ALA. MISS YOU TO THE MOON!
