2011 Books for Breakfast

Shar­ing a pho­to from last year’s break­fast

We’ve been get­ting ready for weeks and final­ly the CLN Books for Break­fast is tomor­row. Steve and I are still print­ing hand­outs, stuff­ing fold­ers, cre­at­ing the Pow­er­point, and it’s only three hours until we need to walk out the door. It’s unbe­liev­able to me how many people’s efforts go into this three-hour event. We host 25 authors, one Game Mas­ter (David LaRochelle) who has come up with a ster­ling game again this year, five CLN 5×5 Book­talk­ers, and 250 won­der­ful­ly inter­est­ed teach­ers, librar­i­ans, and book­sellers. The love of books and read­ing in that room is pal­pa­ble … and, final­ly, all of the hard work is worth it. What real­ly makes every­thing work is the 25 vol­un­teers who have put in time pre­ced­ing the event and will work at the event tomor­row. Couldn’t do it with­out you, every­one. Cross­ing our fin­gers that all goes well tomor­row.
