That’s what the Florida Media Specialists call their organization (Florida Association for Media in Education)…and I’m off to their annual conference this morning. Which is held at a Disney resort. What would be the Iowa equivalent of a Disney resort? The Super 8 near Adventureland? No-o-o….I don’t think we have an equivalent. Last I heard, the Iowa media specialists met at a hotel in downtown Des Moines. Life is definitely not fair. (Of course, I’m not a media specialist, so I don’t know what I’m complaining about. I get to go to the Disney resort!)
I wish I was already there — Dave Barry is speaking this morning. I’d LOVE to hear him! He’ll probably be long gone by the time I get there.
I wonder if I’ll have an audience for my session tomorrow? I’m speaking during the very last time slot…and I’m going up against Jack Gantos. (I don’t know about you, but I’d rather hear Jack Gantos than me…we’ll probably be signing books at the same time tomorrow, though, so maybe I’ll at least get to meet him! That would be cool!)
