ALA <i>not</i> in Orlando in 2010, <i>and not</i> Visiting Harry at His Theme Park
Courtesy of Stephanie Stokes and PUB-LIB , here's the upcoming ALA schedule, with the choice of the 2010 venue (oops, we stand corrected, see last paragraph below) explained by the hot hot Harry news of a Harry Potter theme park at Universal Orlando Resort.
The park will recreate life-size versions of Hogsmeade Village and
Hogwarts Castle at an estimated price tag of a half-billion dollars.
Scheduled to be completed in 2009, the attraction will be the park's most
expensive venture, according to Tom Williams, chairman and CEO of Universal
ALA Schedule: June 21 to 27, 2007 - Washington, D.C.
June 26 to July 2, 2008 - Anaheim, CA;
July 9 to 15, 2009 - Chicago;
June 24 to 30, 2010 - Orlando;
June 23-29, 2011 - New Orleans, LA;
June 21-27, 2012 - Anaheim, CA;
June 20-26, 2013 - Washington, D.C.;

Why no show in the capital of the civilized world, New York City???
(update)Thanks to reader John Overholt, we discovered that ALA has amended its location list eliminating Orlando. Here's the corrected list of ALA meeting locations.
