Spread the Word Sunday

*Spread the Word Sunday is a meme hosted by The Tattered Page to announce some sort of book related news or cause.*

I am attending ALA again this year and I can't wait. I am excited about all of the new books and visiting a new state and city. I have always been interested in visiting New Orleans and the French Quarter. Oak Alley Plantation, the bayou, St. Louis Cemetery, and so on. Let's go New Orleans!

For those who do not know what the American Library Association convention is, I provided some info below:

"With more than 900 exhibiting organizations, multiple pavilions and stages featuring the hottest authors, and numerous related fun events, the exhibit floor is an integral part of your learning, professional development, and networking. The Exhibit Hall offers you the opportunity to explore and discuss with expert vendors the breadth and depth of new and favorite library products, services, books, online services, tools, and technologies.
The ALA Annual Exhibits will be held in McCormick Place, Chicago.

Exhibit Hours
June 22nd: Friday Opening Reception on the Exhibit Floor5:30pm - 7:00pm
June 23rd: Saturday9:00am - 5:00pm
June 24th: Sunday9:00am - 5:00pm

As I mentioned in my posts, ALA Midwinter 2016 Recap & ALA Annual 2016 RecapALA Conferences are quite similar to BookExpo America. More like a lowkey version of BookExpo America. And I am so grateful to be able to have attended!

If you're a fellow book blogger or someone who loves books and will be attending this year's Annual Conference, look me up!
