Wow! Gene and I had a fantastic time at the AASL conference last week. Who knew Columbus was such an awesome city? Thank you to all of the wonderful people who came by to check out our new merchandise and to proclaim their undying love for Unshelved! I had so much fun that next week I’m hopping on a plane to do it all over again, this time with English teachers instead of school librarians. If you are in Minneapolis for NCTE, come visit me at Booth #442.
While you’re in the Exhibit Hall, please stop by and show your support for this week’s sponsors. Simon & Schuster will be at Booth #506. Their list of authors and illustrators who will be signing is absolutely mind-blowing! Then make your way over to our friends at Penguin Random House (Booths #327-329) where Random House Academic will have a fabulous selection of titles, many of which have Teacher’s Guides available. And don't forget to visit Booths #525-527 where Algonquin Young Readers and Workman will be celebrating the awesomeness of middle grades with author signings, tote bags, books, and other great swag. We’ll see you in Minneapolis!
