I’m leaving tomorrow for the Texas Library Association conference in Houston, and I’m really looking forward to it. This is my first conference since I went to NCTE/ALAN in November. One of the best parts of that conference was a dinner out one night with four fabulous women: Linda Sue Park, Nancy Werlin, Elizabeth Partridge, and Tanya Lee Stone. Here’s a photo of us afterward, looking full and happy (sadly I forgot to take it until after Elizabeth left):
I think we look like the Children’s Literature version of Sex and the City.
Here’s my schedule at TLA:
Tuesday, March 31
2-3:50pm: Women of YA Lit +1 with Nancy Werlin, Cassandra Clare, Justine Larbalestier, and Patrick Jones
Convention Center, Room 370
Wednesday, April 1
11am-12pm: I’ll be signing books at the Convention Center Autographing Area
Thursday, April 2:
1-1:30pm: Texas Teens For Libraries (TT4L) Author Chat with Scott Westerfeld
Hilton Americas, Grand Ballroom D&E
I have an interview on the Young Adult Round Table blog here. My favorite question was “BBQ or Tex Mex?” though, upon reflection, I’m sorry I didn’t mention the amazingness of Taco Deli chocolate mole tacos. And their breakfast tacos (especially the spinach ones with chorizo…) In fact I just had one this morning and it was SO GOOD. What else can you get that is so incredibly delicious and only $2?
