Jillian Tamaki at ALA Conference 2015
Jillian Tamaki is currently returning to our North American side of the Atlantic after a terrific ELCAF in England, and she's headed straight to San Francisco for an appearance at the American Library Association Annual Conference 2015! The conference begins today, taking place June 25th-30th in the Moscone Center's North and South Halls. While much of the programming is exclusive to conference attendees (register here), there are still a few open-to-the-public opportunities to meet Jillian and hear her speak! Here's where you'll find Jillian this ALA Conference:

SUNDAY, JUNE 28th

Have a wonderful (extended, perhaps?) weekend, SF!
