Speaking at UELMA and PLA

I just returned from a three day trip to Utah and Indiana.  In Utah I was the keynote speaker a the Utah Educational Library Media Association (UELMA).  Right after that event on Thursday I flew to Indianapolis for the Public Library Association conference (PLA) to speak at 7:00am on Friday.  And then home again after a mere 18 hours in Indiana.
