Geez wiz, I hate when that happens. I did have a good time volunteering at the Symposium though.
I got to hear the keynote speaker talk about Multicultural Literature as a Form of Counter-Storytelling and interact with other MLS students (and faculty) outside of class. Oh, and there were these heavenly mocha cupcakes. I even got to meet Mark Puente, who works with ARL (click here to see why I was geeked to meet him).
This symposium was a reminder that if I want to attend the ALA Annual Conference, I better start saving up my money now.
