Shifting Gears

Still catching up on email, thank you notes, etc. Gack. I can’t get ready for tomorrow’s trip until I clear up everything from last week. Gack, gack.

At least it didn’t snow this morning.

I head for Austin tomorrow for the Texas Library Association Conference. On Wed., you can find me from 3-4:30pm at the Baker & Taylor event in the Old Pecan Room (interesting name) of the Radisson Hotel. Wednesday night I finally get to meet Sarah Dessen!!! We’re having dinner with a group of TX librarians.

On Thursday I’ll be signing in the Author Pen (ha – just made that up. Get it? Texas – cattle – pens – authors…), the book signing area of the convention floor. I think it is in Aisle 7. I wonder if there will be any blue light specials. I am giving a speech called A Voice for YA Readers from 3-4. Don’t have the location for that yet, but it will be someplace in the convention center.

At 6pm on Thursday, Sarah Dessen (aka writergrl) and I will venture out of the conference to sign books at:
Book People (great store)
603 N. Lamar (at 6th & Lamar)
Austin, TX 78703
(512) 472-5050

I predict a lot of fun, so come on out if you’re in the area.

Friday I’m speaking at a middle school in Austin. I get back to Philly late Friday night.
Back to the mail mountain now.

  1. Love your work!

    Hi! I’ve been following your blog the past few days after finding it on the site of a friend of a friend of a friend. I purchased your book about Sarah Hale for my four year old daughter, Sarah, for Christmas. I spent a lot of time searching for books containing my daughters’ names as special gifts this year. (My 7 year old received Lynne Cheney’s A is for Abigail. And my baby received Olivia). Thank You, Sarah is a fabulous book, sure to be one of our favorites. It made my Sarah feel special to know she shares a name with such an amazing woman.

  7. “Gack gack” sounds like Meisner banging away on the gock block at practice. Ask Mer, she’ll explain better than me.

    Machine guns say “gack, gack” too.

    1. I want a gock block, Ms. Goxx.

      Don’t machine guns say “Ack, ack”? Really, they should say,”Get down, you fools, and put that helmet back on!”

  10. Meisner is hot stock broker rob mom.

    But anyway. I’d like a book from this texas trip if you can snag one signed? I forgot to give you the one of hers that I have.

    Oh, I’m going to laugh super hard if it snows up there tonight or tomorrow!

    1. Any preference? Or do you want her new one?

      Wouldn’t be fitting if a blizzard hit and I was trapped on the runway for hours. (Me? Catastrophize? Never.)
