ALA Annual 2016

Awards Night for Librarians #alaac16

It’s like having all the fancy entertainment awards wrapped up in one.  That’s what I tell my non-library friends when they say “Huh?!?”  after I start gushing about the Newbery Caldecott Wilder events, as well as the other amazing awards.  Last night’s event was amazing, as expected.

I went with my co-worker, Jen J (of Jen J.’s Booksheets, see it here!)  We had a great time.   Every year I find myself saying “This is the best year ever!”  and this year was no exception.

All of the winners gave fabulous acceptance speeches,  which I can’t wait to read again, once they are printed in the journals.

Each of the speeches was deeply personal, and I felt that the winners shared a piece of themselves with us in the audience.  They made me feel more connected to them and their books.

I’ve got to dash now — time for my next program.
