Will you be in New Orleans this weekend? I will! I’m looking forward to attending; this is the first Annual I will attend that is not in D.C. I’ve never been to NOLA and have always wanted to go. I know that the end of June is not the best time to be there when you are a cold weather-loving gal like myself, but I’m still excited!
Last year, I had a very firm schedule due to my Local Arrangements commitments, but this year my schedule is much more fluid. Here is what I know I plan to attend:
12:30 – 4:30 – YALSA pre-con Give Them What They Want
5:30 – Exhibits open!
10:00 – 12:00 – YALSA Strategic Planning session
6:00 – YALSA’s Happy Hour
8:00 – The YA Blogger Meet Up
9:00 – 10:00 am – YA Author Coffee Klatch
10:30 am – The Beekman Boys at the What’s Cooking Stage – I loooove the Beekman Boys and will have a few long-overdue posts about them post-Annual.
10:30 am – I’m presenting! Reading & Wrestling: Think Outside the Box to Reach Today’s Teens – author Paul Volponi and wrestler
Sgt Slaughter (last minute change) the Mouth of the South will also be speaking! Wish me luck!
8:00 pm – Printz!
Please say hi if you see me!
