>D.C. in the summer at least isn’t Orlando in the summer, but when can ALA get back to San Francisco? (Not in the foreseeable future, but we do get to go to Las Vegas in 2014.) But I’ll be there and would be pleased if anyone would like to drop by the Horn Book booth, #3154. You can find me there from 9-12, Saturday through Monday. And I’ll be the boy with the purple socks at the Newbery-Caldecott-Wilder banquet.

  1. >I know it makes sense to someone; next year it’s, Philadelphia in January and Anaheim in June …

    I will wave at the Horn Book booth for sure.

    >I’ll be sure to say hello on Sat. morning.

    BTW, I love the description of “A Listing of Library Association Conferences and Religious Holidays” at the ALA page. What a great mix – especially as carried out over the next decade. Now I’ll know not only when ALA comes back to DC (2013) but also when Yom Kippur falls that year (9/14). How very helpful.

    >Would love to see you all–Martha Parravano and I are at the booth in the mornings, then Kitty Flynn and Anne Quirk take over at noon. Collect them all!

    >I think Orlando and Washington DC in summer are equally hellish . . . and that is coming from a Miamian.

    Someone needs to tell the ALA that summer is in season for Orlando (all those Disney travelers) and winter is off season (The kids are in school then), so it would be very nice if they’d have a Midwinter in Orlando, when it is off-season, cheap, and lovely weather. It is, actually, one of the better-laid-out convention centers.

    >Wendie–they do sell tickets there, somewhere by the exhibit hall; but if you have proof you purchased one, bring that along.
