After his talk, he encouraged a mosh pit signing. (Which may be the first mosh pit hosted at ALA Midwinter.)
"Let's form a 'librarian moshpit' and not stand in an orderly line" fastest & most fun author book signing I've been too. Loved how @RickSteves disrupted the orderly librarians lining up telling us to gather like Italians. Can't wait to read "Travel as a Political Act" #alamw19 pic.twitter.com/LWn0as5Drt

If you had some spare time, the Networking Uncommons was the perfect place to jazz up your lanyard.

It was also great to see all types of library workers at Midwinter.
Hey non-MLIS library people at #alamw19– I’m so glad you’re here! You are valuable and worthy.

Afterwards, the president’s program featured Robin DiAngelo who was such an engaging speaker.

Sunday wrapped up with a screening of The Public with a Emilio Estevez Q&A!
At “the publi” … Emilio Estevez gave an impassioned shout out to the Connecticut 4. Yay to my friends! #alamw19

By the time you got to your hotel, you realize you may have grabbed one too many books to ship the next day.
