OK, this is totallly unrelated to ALA, but I was walking to a boat cruise yesterday morning, and there was this guy coming out of a hotel with his tiny dog in a basket covered by a cage top! Ah, the sights of Chicago!
If you’d like to see any more pix of ALA, here are mine from the past couple of days. These albums are short–fewer than 7 pix each, I think.
Besides meeting so many fantastic writers and people I know from online, highlights were lunch with my editor yesterday–both fun and productive–and the Newbery/Caldecott/Wilder awards banquet last night. Amazing speeches–and I read the final chapter of The Graveyard Book about 2 hours beforehand, so it worked out perfectly!
