Authors as Advocates -- New ALA President's Initiative
ALA's new president Roberta Stevens of the Library of Congress launched her “Our Authors, Our Advocates” presidential initiative when she took office in Washington, DC. For the past ten years, Roberta Stevens worked with the organizing committee of the hugely successful National Book Festival and with Librarian of Congress, Dr. James Billington. This is an excellent development, given Roberta's experience, connections, and enthusiasm.
