ALA Annual 2024

The Post-ALA Annual Conference TBR Pile

Meeting authors and illustrators is an exciting part of attending #alaac24. I feel very lucky to have been able to attend the conference this year. While I didn’t have time to meet everyone I wanted to, I was able to pick up several advance reading copies to take home. Here’s what I’m most excited to read. If you picked up any great ARCs at #alaac24 or elsewhere, I’d love to know what’s on your list!

Conference Blogger Celeste Rhoads (she/her/hers) is originally from John Steinbeck’s hometown of Salinas, California, where she read on the beach, in trees, on road trips, and everywhere in between. She moved to Paris in 2005, and immediately found a home at the American Library in Paris. As the Children’s and Teens’ Services Manager, she oversees the Library’s collections, policies, and programs for ages 0–18. Celeste has a master’s degree in Library Science from Rutgers University, where she focused on digital libraries, and children’s literature. Celeste enjoys connecting people of all ages with great reads—especially contemporary titles.
