Just finished my registration for ALA -- it's in Chicago so will be driving. Arranged for my own hotel - a few $ more but got the HQ hotel, worth not having to take cabs everywhere. Amelia Bloomer Breakfast and the Coretta Scott King 40th Anniversary breakfast is on the agenda as is the Newbery-Caldecott Banquet. This year there is not the option to purchase a table. not sure I would have anyway but it was fun last year to have a "author" table of friends who were able to sit together.
But before that there's the SDE 1st grade conference in Indianapolis, PSLA in State College Pennsylvania, and the International Reading Association conference in Minneapolis.
And in between will be two special high school graduations -- Jade on the 30th of May, and Aubrey on the 31st of May -- very special days.
