Shipping up to Boston

I am pleased to hear that ALA Midwinter is going to be in Boston this year, just a few blocks from my office. I have attended ALA conventions twice, once tagging along with my mother, then a librarian at Northeastern, and as an exhibitor in 1999 in DC, but those were in the summer and it is in the winter that the Newbery Medal is awarded. For those who are interested, there is a blog at School Library Journal that actively discusses the potential contenders.

And you may get to see some Maud-L friends. (Not me, alas.) I had such fun seeing friends the year Midwinter was in Seattle

Not sure who is coming but I hope I will be able to get a badge and wander about.

Did you know it's actually being held at the NEW convention center, inconveniently located on the S. Boston waterfront? Not at the Hynes as in previous years!
