I attended the OELMA (Ohio Educational Library Media Association) conference this past weekend and, just as I suspected, it was a blast hanging out with a bunch of librarians! I started with my presentation, Tales of a Fourth Grade Something on Saturday morning, caught a couple of fabulous presentations by Mindy McGinnis and Chris Crutcher, and wrapped up the day with 2 hours of Author Speed Dating. 'Just what is Author Speed Dating?' you might be asking yourself. Well, it's twelve minutes sessions with small groups of conference attendees. Besides being sick of the sound of my own voice after two hours, it was great to be able to meet and chat in small groups. Thanks to everyone at this great organization for allowing me to be a part of your conference!
