To ALA 18 Staff and Participants,

I regret to inform you that I will unfortunately not be able to attend the next ALA 18 due to various reasons. I apologize to all who were looking forward to seeing me at the convention, and also to the staff who prepared for my participation. It’s very disappointing that I wouldn’t be able to attend the event, even after the announcement was made, because I was truly looking forward to meeting with you all. I hope sometime in the future, I will get to see you all again, but for this time around, please accept my apology.

Sincerely, Hiroshi Nagahama
