What a privilege it was to attend the Virginia Association of School Librarians conference November 2-4! It was great to meet such enthusiastic professionals passionate about getting the right books into the hands of their students. Wonderful to be with other SCBWI members as we gave our five-minute pitches for school visits. The exchange afterwards of how authors can be of most use to school librarians was enlightening. The folks at Bookworm Central, the book distributor for the SCBWI authors, were truly delightful. It was a terrific experience in all ways.
