Don't say you have not been warned ALAN Attendees

I love this email I just received from NCTE. For all ALAN attendees, especially first-timers, this is so important! Thanks, NCTE! and join in an #nctechat this Sunday at 8 ET about attending the conference with tips from those of us who are old hands.

Dear Teri Lesesne,
Thank you for registering for the 2013 ALAN Workshop in Boston! As you prepare for the workshop, we wanted you to be aware that you will be receiving over 40 books at the event. The weight of these books is almost 40 lbs. We may have additional books for you by the time we all arrive in Boston, too, so the weight could increase.

If you decide to ship your books home, there is a Federal Express shipping office on the first floor of the Hynes Convention Center. If you don't want to ship them, you may want to bring an additional suitcase that you could take your books home in (it may be cheaper to pay for the extra baggage than the postage).

We're looking forward to seeing you all in Boston! Don’t forget the ALAN Reception on Sunday evening. Click here for the official invitation for the reception.

NCTE/CCCC Convention Manager
