The 817s Inaugural Performance at ALA Anaheim!

The theme for the American Library Association’s 2012 Annual Conference & Exhibition in Anaheim is “Transforming Our Libraries, Ourselves.”  So it seems fitting that my new library comedy group – THE 817s – are making our inaugural performance at ALA Anaheim on the Pop Top stage Monday, June 25th from 10 – 11am.  

Besides, if you really want to transform anything, isn’t humor a great way to start?

Seriously, this performance is going to be the must-see library event of the year.  Literary stand-up comedy, library-themed improv and sketches, musical parodies, videos, plus, the 817’s are doing the only book cart drill at the entire conference and it is going to be hilarious!  Not to knock the other talent attending the conference, but nobody is going to dance with books but the 817s and do you really want to miss that?

No you don’t...I also give out free bookmarks.  Yes, FREE BOOKMARKS!  See you there…

The 817’s are:
Stand-Up Librarian Meredith Myers
Danica Sheridan, MLS of Fortune
RUSA's own Mr. Reference, Dave Tyckoson
