I knew she was awesome when she mentioned that her mother is a former librarian named Ida... Doesn't get any better than that.. being that I am a librarian named Ida::)))) We chuckled about this during her presentation as she offered to give me the chain around her neck until she looked at mine and teased me about having the real thing around my neck and that hers was fake. I told her I wasn't sure of that and she said it looked "blingy" even as far away as she was. The audience roared with laughter!
She kept us going from the time that we arrived until after we left! I can't wait to read her books. I brought back several with me and will be jumping in soon! I know that I won't be able to put them down once I start reading them! I took several pictures during and after her presentation that I am going to share with you.
These authors discussed their books after being presented by different members of the ALTAFF team. Many of the books were given away free and were autographed by the authors. I brought back two copies of each book. I met several very nice people who loved the tea and conference in general as much as I did.
