I've always loved New Orleans, but now it holds a very special place in my heart. This past weekend, Ollie the Owllama made it's debut at the American Library Association Annual Conference in NOLA, and the reception was amazingly overwhelming! I still feel like I am in a dream!
Thank you to all of the Librarians, Teachers, Authors and other industry professionals who are passionate about books and reading, and allow the literary community to continue to thrive. You are all inspiring and I will never forget the positive and uplifting support I received from each of you with whom I was lucky enough to meet and share Ollie's story!
Thank you, thank you, thank you, and I look forward to seeing you in D.C. next year!
