Actually, I'll be posting about ALA off and on for a while now, as I sort through my experience there.
Right now, here's the picture of me speaking, taken by my friend Mary Bowman-Kruhm (who was also one of the Nonfiction Book Blast speakers). The black smudge to the right is the coal-black WebKin kitten I take with me these days -- because it matches the black cat on the cover of my latest book. It took me a long time to figure out what looks like a black necklace in that picture. Ah yes, It's my conference nametag. We all wore them.
