We started the day with listening to the amazing Sylvia Acevedo.
The exhibits were open for a full day today and well, some attendees, couldn’t contain themselves.
It’s also a great day to stop by a booth and let the authors know how much their work is appreciated!

Eric Klinenberg gave such an amazing afternoon talk that woke everyone up.

…even if you didn’t like the opening music.

Near the end of the night, it’s time to let loose and… play rock, paper, scissors. (Can we be invited next time?)

Finally after a long day, it was time to catch a screening of The Public with Emilio Estevez.
Writer/director/star Emilio Estevez and co-star Jena Malone answer questions from a roomful of librarians after a screening of their great movie, @ThePublicFilm. Thank you, Emilio, for this loving look at libraries and how they serve the homeless. #alamw19 pic.twitter.com/23iSbev9Cw
