Gray skies couldn’t dampen the excitement at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts, where educators, librarians, writers, illustrators, editors, and publishers came out in droves to support and promote worldwide literacy.
Here are a few photographic highlights:

And a trip to Boston wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Robert McCloskey’s wonderful ducklings at the Boston Public Garden.
