Speakingposter(blog)

I'll be speaking at a few conferences this spring. You can see me:

March 30th (evening keynote) and 31st (morning graphic novel talk) in Hershey, PA, at the Pennsylvania School Librarian's Association conference.

May 3rd in Worcester, MA, at an event for the Massachusetts Library System, I'll be giving two of our keynotes, one on either side of lunch, and I'll also hang out a bit to swap stories.

May 4th in Portsmouth, NH, I'll be giving a at the New Hampshire Library Association Spring Conference.

I'll also be at ALA Annual in June at the first Library Comic booth #1321 with a bunch of new T-shirts and whatever else Chris and I can come up with.

Hope to see you at one of these!
