My day job is the Exhibits Manager for the American Library Association, which is the #1 Library Exposition in the World. Our Annual Conference and Exhibits will be held June 21-27, 2007 in D.C. at the new convention center.
1) If you live in the area and would like a FREE pass to the exhibits, please send me an e-mail. I will send you a link letting you know how to receive a pass. The exhibit hall is pretty fascinating. It is 180,000 sq. feet of books and anything else you may need for your library, school or bookstore. Most of the big publishers are there and a lot of indie publishers as well our graphic novel pavilion. There are always great give aways, if you are into that sort of thing. Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
2) What is going on in D.C. as far as magic performances? I have a lot of time after the show closes and I would like to go see people work. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
