Carla Hayden, the 14th and current Librarian of Congress, will deliver the keynote address at the Opening General Session of SLA 2018.

Prior to her appointment by President Obama in 2016, she served as chief executive officer of the Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore. She received the Librarian of the Year award from the Library Journal in 1995 in recognition of the outreach services provided by the Pratt Library to the Baltimore community during her tenure.

Wes Moore

Army Combat Veteran and Author

Wes Moore is an Army combat veteran and author who was born and grew up in Baltimore. His New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller, The Other Wes Moore, details the fascinating intersection of his life with that of another man by the same name—one ended up a Rhodes scholar and decorated veteran, the other a convicted criminal. A White House Fellow (2006–2007) who served as special assistant to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Moore was one of Ebony magazine’s “Top 30 Leaders Under 30” for 2007 and Crain’s New York Business “40 Under 40 Rising Stars” in 2009.
