Maybe the fates have aligned?

So, I just found out via Sarah Dessen's blog that she'll be at Anderson's Bookshop in Naperville...

with Laurie Halse Anderson...

the weekend I'll be in Chicago for ALA...


ON MY BIRTHDAY
.

Um. Can we say Happy Birthday to me?! I'm trying to figure out if I can possibly arrange things to attend all these wonderful things at once. But if I can... wow, what a weekend!

Mmmm...might not want to contemplate this too long....

That would be a spectacular birthday! Perhaps list the things in order of those you want to do most so you get to do the best items from the agenda, if not all?

Awesome-I'll be in Chicago that same time! Thanks for letting me know. Anderson's is very cool-I wish I lived closer.

We could totally make that and ALA Abby-it's at 7, so it wouldn't really cut into that much conference time. Just the driving part is annoying and I doubt my husband will want to go. I will figure out a way though-where are you staying for ALA-maybe we could carpool??

Sarah, I think I'll actually be staying with a friend of mine who lives in McHenry, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it out to Naperville. But I haven't figured out all the details yet, so everything's still a little bit up in the air. I will keep you posted!

I hope you can make it! My husband and I are both going (I'm dragging him the exhibits one day to carry books and swag for me) and we're staying in Hinsdale, since that's where his parents are. We were going to stay in the city on Sat. night since we have to be up early for the YA coffee klatch thing on Sun morning, but now I might change those plans!! I hope you can make it. Are you going to the YA author thing on Sun. morning?

That is totally awesome. You've been building up some good karma, there. Bring us back a report. :)

If you figure out a way to make it work, I will definitely go with you!
