Day two of ALA Annual Conference was a whirlwind, with sessions and events at just about every hour of the day.
You wake up excited for day two and can’t wait for the day to begin!

In the afternoon, it’s time to hit the exhibit floor to grab even more ARCs and meet some of your favorite authors. Including Jason Reynolds!

ALA pro-tip: you can sneak in a workout after you grab the perfect number of ARCs.
After a day of sessions and exhibits, you finally head to your hotel room and weigh your goods.
When it’s time to head to the evening events or dinner, you must rely on every Chicago instinct you have.
It's strange to be back in Chicago after many years and feel my inner compass immediately reorient to "the lake is that way." #alaac17

Is any evening event complete without Lynda Barry?
By the end of the day, we think this is it: our minds are exploding.
