Sunday Salon- Happy Father's Day


Happy Father's Day!

This Sunday we have a lot going on- my husband's writing group is coming over, and later we're having dinner with my dad. I don't know how much reading I'll be doing!

When my husband's group comes over, I'm going to work on thank-you notes to all the great library marketing folks who sent galleys to last Friday's conference held by the New England branch of the Association of Jewish Libraries. I was in charge of arranging for exhibits and while we weren't able to arrange for reps to visit, several publishers were extremely generous when it came to samples and galleys. Algonquin, Gefen, Harper Collins, Macmillan and Random House all sent us some wonderful treasures, and our attendees were thrilled. Permanent Paper also sent a box of their sticky notepads, which everybody loved and scooped up quite eagerly. If you're on Twitter, you can read my conference tweets at #neajl09; if you're interested in detailed conference notes, I'll be posting to our association blog, neajl.blogspot.com, in the next few days.

Then later, I'll be cooking up a rack of lamb and having my dad over for dinner. Should be fun.

What does your family have planned for the holiday?
