After a whirlwind semester, I sort of wish I could stay in one place and just sit for a while, but I’ve already traveled to Illinois and Boston, and I’ve just spent a fabulous week in Chapel Hill and Charlotte, North Carolina. A few of my friends are students at the UNC Chapel Hill School of Information and Library Science program so we had brunch and then they gave me a tour of their gorgeous campus. The second half of the week was filled with really good times at the Children’s Literature Association conference: The Best of 3. It’s one of my favorite conferences because people talk (thoughtfully and critically) about children’s literature all day long, and many participants have become good friends. Enjoy some photos!
