Sunday was a busy day before the big #ALAYMA announcements on Monday.
It began with Junot Diaz’s amazing speech and Q&A.
Afterwards, a few lucky folks got a picture with him!
In the Networking Uncommons, people de-stressed by playing a too-real game of Cards Against Librarianship.
Others opted for meeting with colleagues and brainstorming instead!

After some sessions and networking, it was time to hit up the exhibit floor for even more swag.
Every time I think I'm done in the exhibit hall, I find something else. #alamw18

It was also one of the last days to show off all the fun ribbons you grabbed at the ALA Lounge.

In the afternoon, the President’s Forum sparked discussion and debate on neutrality of libraries. (But not before some ’90s songs.)
Getting ready for hot takes on neutrality in libraries and listening to these 90’s dance songs. #alamw18

After the forum, it was socializing time!
