ALA rundown so far
Seasons of Love

ALA 2nd day

My second (and last) day at ALA was a blur. Breakfast with some really interesting and opinionated librarians; then I found a friend from DC to hang with for an hour, then signing, lunch and more signing.
Then parties!
and dinner!
and parties!

So it was excellent. Small highlights:

One lovely librarian who raved and raved about my book and I said which one? and the one she loved was A Bad Boy Can Be Good for a Girl by Tanya Lee Stone.

I snuck into/crashed a dessert party with John Green and snagged chocolate cake and bumped into Susan Patron and didn't get caught!

I got to chat with Jack Prelutsky! I got a book signed by Judy Blume. Likewise Annette Curtis Klause.

We had teen author responsible drinks, and it was mobbed. This is a vital part of literature, really growing at the moment, and it was so great to be there with all these talented people who write for the same audience I do! Cecil Castelluci had an autograph book and was getting everyone to sign it. I told Marcus Zusak how much I liked I am the Messenger and he seemed profoundly embarassed. Several people, all in cute dresses, told me they had read my post about cute dresses for conferences and showed off their excellent purchases!

Must go catch train. Goodbye, ALA!
