Sunday brought its A-game to #alamw17. From Kwame Alexander to US Rep. John Lewis to cheeseheads, you had no idea who you were going to see.
Kwame Alexander blew us all away with the importance of poetry, children’s input, and books.
"Books are like amusement parks; sometimes you've got to let kids pick their ride."– Kwame Alexander, Newbery Medal winner #alamw17

It was hard to avoid a football fan (or joke) with the Georgia Dome right next door.
I'm playing the game "who's in Atlanta for the NFL playoffs and who's here for #alamw17". It's a very easy game.

A football team will soon experience the agony of defeat.
We at #alamw17 are already familiar with the agony of the feet.

The exhibit floor had a little bit more to offer than just ARCs today.

That part of #alamw17 when I panicked for a full 10 mins about my empty work email… then realized it's Sunday. I need a nap.
