I’ll be attending ALA’s Annual meeting in Chicago this weekend. Since I’m going as both an author and Past-President of ALAN (www.alan-ya.org), I have both an official author schedule and an unofficial professional /fanboy schedule. Come say, What’s up, dog? Or just Hi, if that’s not your cuppa tea.

Author Schedule:

Saturday: HARPER FICTION BREAKFAST – 7:15 –9AM – InterContinental Chicago, 505 N Michigan Ave. – 3rd Floor, King Arthur Court.

Saturday: FIRST NOVELIST BOOK SIGNING – 10-11AM – HarperCollins Booth #2011 – Exhibition Hall – Signing copies of Soul Enchilada and making faces at my fellow Greenwillowite, Cindy Pon.

Fanboy Schedule:

SATURDAY: A couple of receptions and an Abram’s celebration.

SUNDAY: YA Coffee Klatch (if I can score a ticket from someone who can’t attend [hint, hint])

SUNDAY: Slipping in the back after dessert’s served at the Newbery/Caldecott.

MONDAY: Dinner with Little Brown

MONDAY: Printz Awards

Otherwise, I’ll generally be stalking Laurie Halse Anderson and narrowly missing David Lubar, as usual
