Today I will fly to Philadelphia to attend this year's Public Library Association Conference. I am looking forward to seeing friends in the field (not the grassy field) and attending a bunch of programs aimed at public librarians. I also am eager to see my new book Read On ... Biography which is scheduled to debut at the conference. I like that Jane Goodall is one of the figures on the cover. I will be with Joyce Saricks and Barry Trott at a signing event at the Libraries Unlimited exhibit (too big to call a booth) on Thursday from 4 to 5 p.m. Come by if you are at PLA.
In the meantime, I will be trying to see as many historical sights and American Art as I can before the conference officially begins.
Once the conference begins I will be reporting on programs and exhibits here at ricklibrarian and at PLABlog. I will also be sending a report or two to Sarah at RAOnline.
