I’m about to leave BEA 2010, which is my new favorite nonlibrary conference of all time. Yes, partially because of all the free books and ARCs you can carry. But really: A conference all about books? Authors, authors, everywhere? A most awesome librarians lunch where I got to hear Adriana Trigiani (who is hysterical), Joshilyn Jackson, Susan Isaacs, and more — and got copies of their newest books? Priceless.
Then, there’s New York. The Strand. The food…
So what’s yours?
I know I haven’t blogged much (OK, at all) lately, but I’ve been thinking a lot about our need to take a lot more from fields outside librarianship in order to evolve — and survive. So, what are your favorite nonlibrary conferences?
