This weekend is the American Library Association's Mid-Winter meeting in San Diego. Last year mid-winter was held in Boston and while I will be sad not to see folks like Dawn from She is Too Fond of Books, I am looking forward to some warm(er) weather and I think I will see Pam from Bookalicious, plus lots of friends from Maud L (list serv of Betsy-Tacy fans)! Plus my sister is coming, plus, Mitali Perkins will be there, plus I will finally meet Melissa Wiley in person, plus Jacqueline Winspear and more!
If you're going, please let me know - I'll be at the Harper booth #2016 most of the time, and here is the schedule of the authors we'll have signing. I will also do my best to make it to the YA Book Blogger Meet Up on Friday evening. Please come and say hello! I'll also be tweeting using the offical hashtag of #alamw11.
