Well, it has been a long, but rewarding trip.  On one hand, I’m sad that the author events are over, but on the other hand I’m glad to be going home.  My own bed and shower are definitely sounding good to me.  Although, I do love how in a hotel, your bathroom is magically cleaned and the bed is totally made while out of the room.  Here’s to all the wonderful hotel staff at the Marriott Riverwalk in San Antonio, TX.  The service there was wonderful!  I was impressed.

Here are my pictures from ALAN Day 2.  I was able to stay long enough to hear Laurie Halse Anderson speak.

After her wonderful speech my roommate and I went back to the hotel to check out and pack the truck for the 7 hour drive home.
