Wanda Brown!

NMLA & MPLA are honored to have ALA President, Wanda Brown, give this year's keynote address.

From Wanda's campaign: "I will bring leadership experience, a voice to represent our profession in addressing current issues, and the determination to promote the importance of libraries as successful contributors to our society. As the professional organization representing America’s libraries, it is vital for ALA to demonstrate the importance of our role in a complex and dynamic world of information. Our strength lies in numbers. Let’s be a partner in a stronger future."

We are getting closer to this year’s annual conference, which is shaping up to be a great event. This year we’re trying something a little different with the traditional Author Luncheon. We are excited to announce that New York Times bestselling and award-winning author Darynda Jones will be the luncheon’s keynote speaker.

There are so many superb local authors we wanted to add to the party, so there will be an author at every table as well. Take advant age of this opportunity to meet some notable writers and enjoy a delicious lunch as well. Seats for the Author Jubilee Event are limited and going quickly, so get yours today. If you’ve already registered, you can add the luncheon to your registration.

If you haven’t yet had the opportunity, the early bird registration deadline is approaching quickly. Luncheon registration is an option during the registration process. If you have any questions please email us ( or
