Nerd Camp CT 2024

I went to my first NErDCampCT in March over in West Hartford, CT. It was the first in-person one I'd been to, and I wanted to share my experience. I think this event is a really wonderful way for librarians to connect with each other as well as authors and illustrators in their region.

The way it works is really up to the attendees. Upon arrival and registration, you mingle and together with the others present, create a schedule for the day. It is that informal!

It was such a whirlwind of information and connection with educators, librarians, and other authors and illustrators.

We (child and I) learned to make 'zines and learned about nonfiction books.

We met so many lovely people! Clockwise from top left: I'm pictured with Ismee Williams (@ismeewilliams), Susan Hood (Susan's website), Chad Sell (@chadsell01), Andrew Hacket (@andrewhacket), Charnaie Gordon (@hereweread), and Priya Gupta (@hindikaybol).
We had a great time, and learned a lot!
