Unfortunately, it was held at a place that had a really lousy view:
But I got over my disappointment and had a lovely dinner with members of the committees:
And I finally got to meet, play with, dine with, laugh with the amazing, Grace Worcester Greene, Youth Services Consultant for Vermont Public Libraries. (Thank you, Grace, for everything.)

AND, I finally got to meet the UBER talented author Kate Messner. (Kate, HOW do you do it all???)

|Me looking kind of stupid at the signing.|
|Me saying some really deep, intelligent and important things (like redneck jokes).|
|Me with some of the great kids who did presentations at the conference.|
You can see the complete list HERE.
Many thanks to the Vermont gang who made that day so special.
