Oh, Anderson's Bookshop. The things you do to me. I was all set to skip this year's YA Lit Conference because I'll be in Chicagoland the weekend before for a bunch of festivities related to a friend's wedding. And then you sent me this:
It's kind of dark, but you can see that David Levithan and John Green are going to be there, right? And, honestly, if it was just John, I might have still skipped it. Not because I don't love him (I do), but because I get many more opportunities to see him now that he has moved to Indy. But David Levithan?! YES, PLEASE. He's on my list of Authors I Really Want to See Someday.
And, apparently, someday is Saturday, September 25. :)
There will be other authors there that I am very excited about: Dana Reinhardt, Kenneth Oppel, Simone Elkeles, Kody Keplinger, and more.
I registered this morning and I'm aiming to convince as many of my buddies as I can to register also. I've been to the YA Lit Con before and had a great time. It's a great chance to hear authors speak. So, who's with me?!
