I had the absolute joy of hitting the exhibit floor of the American Library Association’s Midwinter conference. HOLY COW friends, $60 got me in the door and into an orgy of books.
Football fields of publishers and small presses with ALL the amazing NEW titles! The best part of the whole shindig was getting to see the soon-to-be-out books. There were ARCs for us to handle, read, lust over and if they had an extra copy, take home. If you have the opportunity to attend the ALA Conference in Washington DC in June, you should go. At least check out the Exhibit hall (which will have double the number of displays). OMG, I wish I was going.
Let me show you what I found!
Let’s talk about the two I have read.
So there you have it. ALA Midwinter 2019 was amazing and I was so lucky that it landed in Seattle this year, making it an easy drive from Spokane.
My new dream as a writer is to one day be at one of those tables, signing books and rubbing elbows with librarians from around the country.
