Well, we're back from ALA now, a bit later than most, since we took a trip to San Francisco afterward. The conference was excellent, with Susan Cooper's acceptance speech for the Margaret Edwards award being a definite highlight. The only downside was that Rachael came down with a bad case of food poisoning, which meant that we missed the Newbery / Caldecott banquet :(
We talked to a lot of publishers and brought back some great ARCs to review for the blog, so expect us to be posting some of them up shortly! We also saw several of the people we know from this electronic space, and it was wonderful to speak to you in person.
Now, back to work! We've got a lot coming up in the second half of 2012, and I'm more than a little excited to get started.
