Anderson's YA Lit Con

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?!
