“It's still National Library Week. You should be especially nice to a librarian today, or tomorrow. Sometime this week, anyway. Probably the librarians would like tea. Or chocolates. Or a reliable source of funding.” -- Neil Gaiman

"Off the book subject here, does the YA Lit Symposium have childcare on site?  I know Annual Conferences do, wasn't sure about this one.  Hoping to attend, but this will be a deciding factor for me."
