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
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.
