Beth Yoke just sent a message to YALSA Committee chairs highlighting some YALSA special events coming up for Annual. Somehow I didn’t realize that some of these were in the works. They include:
Friday, June 22
YALSA Member Happy Hour
5:00-7:00 p. m. Old Dominion Brewery, which has the convenience of being located right at the Convention Center. Join members and those interested in joining YALSA to mingle at this informal Happy Hour! Please go to the private room for half price appetizers and discounted spirits!
YALSA 50th Anniversary Party Friday, 10:00 PM – 12:00 AM, Renaissance Ballroom West A/B, Renaissance Washington. Immediately following the Booklist Books for Youth Forum come join YALSA for a fabulous party! It’s free for all registered conference attendees. Open bar and light refreshments. This event is being co-hosted by more than 10 publishers. Please note that the Forum will feature the original winner and honorees from the 2000 Printz Award. Be there or be square!
You can find out about all of YALSA’s programs, and keep up on additions, on the YALSA wiki conference page.
