ALA Annual 2016

Debut authors, Lois Ehlert and boxes of books, oh my! #alaac16

Thus is where the rubber meets the road. Now is when you have to decide which books go home on the plane with you, which books ride in the suitcase to be read soon and which books will be stuffed into boxes and shipped lovingly home via the post office in the back of the exhibit hall.

My carry-on has Moo by Sharon Creech, The Poet’s Dog by Patricia MacLachlan, and The Last Fifth Grade of Emerson Elementary by debut author, Laura Shovan.

My memory of lunch is sitting one seat away from Lois Ehlert and seeing the joy streaming out of her when she talked about her hopes of inspiring young people to go out and find their own treasures in nature.  Her beautiful new picture book is Rain Fish.

My boxes of books are shipped.  Boarding pass is printed.  Pretty well packed. Heading home tomorrow morning with visions of new pbs dancing in my head.  Can’t wait to get a copy of Teacup..incredible book…….and Parachute…..and….Lift Your Light a Little Higher……
