We don’t say the whole name. We’re too excited, for one thing, and we’re too breathless. But all the kidlit community knows instantly what we’re talking about: the Texas Library Conference.
This year it was in Houston, and it was… amazing. It was THE PLACE to be to meet famous and not-so-famous authors, librarians, teachers, booksellers, book buyers, publishers, editors, bloggers, and book lovers of all ages.
I think every Texas writer who can go, should. If not to meet and mingle, then to be surrounded by so many people who are deeply passionate about books. It does the heart good.
Here are some of my favorite pictures, with some of my favorite people from this year’s TLA!
Seriously, I could post pics all day. But I won’t. I’ll just say, be there next year!
