ALA Midwinter 2014: A Cold, Quiet Start in Philadelphia

“The ALA Midwinter Meeting has posted fairly strong attendance in recent years, but this year’s meeting in Philadelphia was off to a noticeably quiet start, largely due to Mother Nature. Fresh on the heels of a major snowstorm and with temperatures lingering in the teens, travel snarls contributed to a lightly attended opening night reception on the exhibit floor Friday. Travel woes aside, the show goes on, with a full slate today of meetings and sessions, following Friday’s opening general session. The opening session featured five acclaimed children’s book creators, who chatted with Booklist senior editor Ilene Cooper “about creating great nonfiction for youth.” (via PW)
