#SOL19: Generosity

Face to Face

They come from across the world. 10,000 strong. Teachers, Students, Administrators, Authors. Techies. First time attendees. Veteran attendees. The results from long distance planning to present together.  Planning to share a room.  Planning, chatting and sharing sessions to attend, places to go, and glorious meet ups. They come by planes, trains, and cars. Some add on early travel and pick up the Poe Historical Tour. Others stay for #ALAN19. So many choices. So many possibilities.  10,000 friends meeting for: conversation, celebration, food, drink, a Read Aloud, laughter . . . and sharing!
