Of course this was all I had ever wanted in my whole entire life ever, to be invited to the Library Journal Movers & Shakers luncheon. Free lunch: my favorite thing. With drinks: what are you serious. Effortful: how are they going to try to be amazing. Alas, the venue couldn’t handle us all, it was dark and loud and hot, and the last thing I wanted in 104 degree heat was a bowl of macaroni and cheese. Where was the salad? They tried to make us take copies of Rich Dad, Poor Dad, but I do not believe in any of that. But still. I had a name tag, and I got to see L. and meet W. and shake hands with lots of people. And it was free and special and I will totally go next year.
