This was the weekend we were supposed to have been in Indianapolis for the American Library Association Midwinter Conference. I can’t say I was all that enthused about going to Indy in January. It’s BRRRR cold there in January. (Next year’s conference is scheduled for San Antonio and the year after New Orleans, which are much better winter venues.) Howsomever, I’m on a committee that usually meets for two 8-hour plus days at Midwinter to determine the winners of the ALA Reading List Awards for adult genre fiction, and that work still has to happen this weekend.
So, instead of those two, long, eight-hour in person meetings, we’re having four five-hour Zoom meetings. Technically we’re meeting on Webex, but you get the idea. One of my colleagues has mailed treats to all of us to help us get through the deliberations, and I think we’re all looking forward to meeting each other’s pets.
And in the spirit of that, as well as of the general idea that two – or more – heads are better than one, hence why we’re meeting in the first place, I have a cat picture. (Of course I have a cat picture!) Here are Lucifer and George to remind me that two heads are much better than one, especially when it comes to naps!
