A comment after today's session at NMLA 2011


This morning I gave a talk at the New Mexico Librarian Association annual conference. I talked about looking critically at American Indians in books. At the end of my session, a participant handed me a note. As I walked into my hotel at the end of the day, I read the note.

Pretty awesome feedback, don't you think?

I love it! I think you inspire these sentiments in more people than you realize.

Great feedback, Debbie! And kudos to the participant for her/his willingness to change.

I would like to express my admiration for both you and the note-writer. My respect for people always jumps a mile when they are willing to acknowledge a mistake and put it right. So many folks are too insecure to do that, not realizing it is a sign of strength, not weakness.
