New Orleans

First impression of New Orleans? Muggy. Vibrant. Muggy-er.

I was in the city for the American Library Association Annual Conference, henceforth known as #ALAAC18. It was my first time attending annual, but by now I’m a seasoned conference-attendee and vowed not to overload myself. I limited it to 2-3 sessions, panels or meetings each day. I focused on areas where my personal and professional interests collided. For example, I attended panels on diversity in comics, diversity in literature, and diversity and inclusion across the institution.

But, the following is a hodgepodge of the highlights from my trip. Lots of food, MICHELLE OBAMA!!!, more food, and just generally wandering around when I had free time. Note all the oyster photos. I’m currently in the throes of oyster withdrawal.
