I just attended and observed my first #alacouncil meeting this morning. After taking in the various procedures and formalities, I was especially impressed with the respectful discussion around gun control and libraries. Individual contributions were impassioned and disparate but always mindful of the greater good. I am hooked. New bucket list item: ALA Councilor! #alaac16 #makingithappen

Matt de la Pena and reading
Matt de la Pena’s Newbery award acceptance speech at #alaac16 was amazing. There were so many moments of revelation, insight, and vulnerability that tears were rolling down my face. I was not alone.
