Spend an afternoon and evening<https://sites.google.com/a/oasl.olaweb.org/oasl-test/schedule> connecting, collaborating, and celebrating good reads for K-12 students. Whet your appetite for a feast of popular YA lit served up by public librarians, Battisti and Benedetti. Or, take in what's new in the world of K-6 books from Debbie B. Ford, literature specialist, and hone your storytelling skills with Heather McNeil, the Oregon Library Association's Librarian of the Year. Top off the affair by listening to award-winning author, Angela Johnson<http://www.ajohnsonauthor.com/>, speak about diversity, race, and culture in schools. As one book reviewer eloquently stated, "Johnson transports us to new places and keeps us there by exploring the threads that connect us."
