Yesterday, in my #Road2Reading post, I mentioned that I have been at the ALA Annual conference in Chicago for the past several days. However, I wanted to share some of the titles that I got a glimpse of at ALA. Some I learned about during Publisher Previews and others I saw on display at various booths. Annual is always pretty packed in the exhibit hall and I felt that my photos were not clear enough so I looked for the book covers online. Additionally, this is not a comprehensive list. There were several booths I never managed to visit.
Tomorrow, I will have a general ALA Annual post but I will say that I enjoyed going to the ALSC Awards, which include the Robert F. Sibert Award, and hearing the winners' acceptance speeches. While I was standing in line, waiting for the doors to open, I turned around and looked at the name tag of the man standing behind me. It said Bob Sibert. The son of Robert F. Sibert . Sadly, I was too surprised to say anything, and also, thankful that I didn't blurt out something embarrassing.
