Summer Fun at ALA in Vegas! (by Kristin Levine)

I'm not sure I can quite describe how much fun I had at ALA in Las Vegas this year.  It was my first time attending and I met so many great people.

The trip started with a dinner for librarians and bloggers attended Jacqueline Woodson, Joan Bauer and myself.  We goofed around a bit afterwards taking photos.

 
The next morning I had a great time signing books at the Penguin booth...



 ... and after that Tracy Holczer (from Smack Dab as well!) and I had a delicious lunch with our editor, the fabulous Stacey Barney.


After a lovely Penguin dinner Stacey and I went on yet another adventure - salsa dancing!!  It was the best deal in town - for $10 we got a live band, a dance floor and a free drink.


Finally, Stacey and I decided we simply must make a midnight visit to the latest Vegas attraction, the High Roller, a huge Ferris that takes you high up over the strip.  We even saw fireworks!



A big thanks to Stacey, Tracy and everyone else - especially all the Penguin folks working behind the scenes - who made the visit so much fun!!

  2. So much fun! I wish we could hang out all the time and ride Ferris wheels and go salsa dancing. Especially since I missed that part :)
