My Sunday morning at #alaac22 started with the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) Interest Meet Up facilitated by incoming ALSC President Amy Koester. Always a good sign when you note for next year to have more chairs.
The last time I was at an in-person conference was ALA Midwinter January 2020 in Philadelphia, PA. I am excited to return to an in-person conference but feeling a bit of trepidation. My itinerary for this conference is a bit over enthusiastic. My intensive DC conference planning is packed full reconnecting with mentors, mentees, friends, committee members, translators, publishers, and of course authors, while trying to go to programming and go to the ALSC Awards on Monday morning to see the presentation of my favorite award – The Mildred L. Batchelder.
