On January 28th I had the amazing opportunity to speak at the American Library Association’s Midwinter Meeting. It was so wonderful to finally have the chance to thank librarians for the difference they’ve made in my life.
You see, back when I was a kid my family home lacked what I craved more than even chocolate— Books! Indeed, this might have been a dire situation for a future author. However, as luck would have it, my town had a slew of superheroes! You could usually spot them by their sensible shoes, and the fact that they were fully armed with date stamps, shushes, and reams of recommendations. Yes! Librarians to the rescue!
Thank you, thank you, librarians! I am ever in your debt.
