Upcoming CSK gala -- ridiculous shoes

I am so excited to attend the CSK Gala at the Library of Congress on Friday night during ALA, honoring the fiftieth anniversary of the Coretta Scott King Book Awards. See the EMIERT website for more on "Coretta Scott King Book Awards: 50 Years Strong," and of course check out our May/June Horn Book Magazine: Special Issue: Coretta Scott King Book Awards at 50; copies of the issue will be given away at the gala, and you can also find information about buying your own here.

Meanwhile, I'm trying to break in these beauties for the gala (but it may not actually happen...!).
