Fulcrum at the American Library Association show in Boston

Our table was literally in the furthest corner of the hall, along the small press aisle, but those tenacious librarians still managed to find us! I had terrific conversations with librarians from all over the US and from all types of institutions (one guy was the librarian for Nissan!).

Everyone seemed to love our Tattooed "Tattooed Librarian" display, with the very popular faux tattoos!Lady book, even more so when I explained that it was written by a tattooed librarian! That tattooed librarian, Amelia Klem Osterud joined me Monday, to meet and greet librarians and walk the floor, looking for opportunities for her book (out in November).

For anyone thinking librarians are boring- you’ve got to check out their book cart drill team ‘dances’. NPR happened to do a story on this year’s event- check out the madness: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=106561675
I was very happy that my favorite team, from Oak Park, IL won! Their routine was to Flight of the Valkyries  in gold breast plates and viking helmets, outfitted with braids. librarian_540
