ALA President-elect Camila Alire was the keynote speaker at the WALE 2008 annual conference in Olympia, WA. I first met Camila several years ago when she was Dean of Libraries at the University of New Mexico. When I heard she was coming to the WALE conference, I e-mailed to ask if she was willing to be interviewed for Alki. She graciously agreed.
