Nerds A Go-Go: ALA Annual 2012

So, it turns out there is more than one kind of nerdy convention I enjoy. In June I got to go to the 2012 ALA Annual Conference– that’s the American Library Association, y’all. It’s a big, bustling, baffling conference, and though I still found it far easier to navigate than Comic-Con, there was a lot I missed because I wasn’t in the know about how to find things, how to prioritize, and how to network your way into the Macmillan Dessert Party. Not that I needed any more dessert. And, well– I’m just going to let the comics tell the story.

Here are 11 Lessons Learned from my First ALA Annual.

(Psst- I signed up to table at SF Zine Fest. Which means I will be producing new, printed books soon. Eeep.)

  1. Hey! I love your book and really enjoy your take on ALA Annual. You may have found the only academic librarian that knows about SLJ, though. I work with the College of Education; love talking about children's books. 🙂 If funding comes in, I'll see you there this year.Sarah G.
