My goal here on the blog, whenever I go to a conference, is to provide both info for those attending and an educational experience for those who stay home. I take it seriously. To that end, today, I will discuss my plans for the blog and then give you all a preview of a few key events I will be attending and reporting on.
Tomorrow, the blog will be off. I will be attending my first day of programming. But each night after I come back to the room, I will write up a recap post of what I did that day. That means you can expect a post Saturday recapping Friday, a post Sunday recapping Saturday, etc.... Through Wednesday morning [which will recap Tuesday and have some of my closing thoughts]. After that I may take Thursday and or Friday off, but I will keep you posted.
To see the recap content I provided at PLA for context, click here. I do not live Tweet programs anymore.
Now in terms of following along with the conference, I suggest using this link to follow #alaac22 on Twitter. Remember, you do NOT need a Twitter account to follow along. Anyone can see it, while only those with accounts can interact.
I will also have coupons for my book which you can order with a discount and the coupon and FREE shipping at the conference. Booth 1833 which is the ALA Store. This is a VERY good deal for a MUST buy book. So there is even more incentive to find me.
And here is another guaranteed chance to see me on Saturday morning:
I am replacing the irreplaceable Stephanie Sendaula as the moderator of this conversation. I am very excited. The book is AMAZING and I have so much to talk to them about.
I like to reserve the right to not show up for something so I will not list my full planned schedule here on the blog; however, I do have many programs marked on my conference scheduler. I made my profile public so anyone can see it. The best way to reach me during the conference-- if you are there-- is to either ping me on Twitter or use the app. For the app you click the search magnifying glass on the top right and type my name. [I come up.] I just tested it. And I have it set so anyone can send me a message.
I would like take a moment to highlight the presentations posted on the LibraryReads Events page as I plan to be at all but the Nonfiction [it is up again R.L. Stine]. Also, these are the most revenant to my readers. Please note below, some need you to register so they have enough books for everyone.
