We’re getting excited to head down to New Orleans this week for the American Library Association Annual Conference. New Orleans has always been one of my favorite cities, and I’m looking forward to
eating piles of beignets meeting many awesome librarians while we’re down there. If you’ll be there too, please stop by booth #1132 to say hello! Here’s what we’ll have going on:
SATURDAY, 2-3PM: Under the Mesquite ARC signing and giveaway with debut author Guadalupe Garcia McCall. This is a PHENOMENAL book – it made me cry right at my desk – so you’ll definitely want to snag a copy.
SUNDAY, 10:30-11:30AM: Signing with Christine Taylor-Butler, author of Sacred Mountain: Everest
2-3PM: Signing with Anastasia Suen, author of Pencil Talk and Other School Poems
3-4PM: Signing with Marilyn Singer, author of A Full Moon is Rising
MONDAY, 10-11AM: Signing with Javaka Steptoe, author and illustrator of The Jones Family Express
11AM-12PM: Signing with Sonia Lynn Sadler, illustrator of Seeds of Change and winner of this year’s Coretta Scott King/John Steptoe Award for New Talent in Illustration
We’ll also have ARCs of our first three fall titles from TU BOOKS, our new science fiction/fantasy imprint.
Trust me you guys, you won’t want to miss these.
Looking forward to seeing some of you there! If you’ve got fun restaurant recommendations or things to do, be sure to leave them in the comments. And if you can’t attend, stay tuned for a special giveaway just for you!
