If you’re near Philadelphia this weekend, come to “Telling the Story of All of Us: Books for a Modern World”, a conference celebrating diversity in middle grade and young adult literature!
On Saturday, Nov. 14 and Sunday, Nov. 15, panels will feature many authors, including Sonia Manzano (Becoming Maria), I.W. Gregorio (None of the Above), Shaun Hutchinson (The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley), Corinne Duyvis (Otherbound), and more!
I’ll be moderating a discussion of “The Author’s Journey and the Author’s Responsibility” on Sunday from 3:45-4:45 p.m. at Friends’ Central School in Wynnewood, PA, followed by a signing and reception. My books will be available for purchase, as will all the other authors — courtesy of Children’s Book World, the excellent hosts of the events. Buy books to support them and our diverse authors!
I have a couple of appearances lined up this month:
May the 4th Be With You
First, if you’re anywhere near Rosemont, PA, come to the Rosemont Book Festival this Saturday, May 4. The first annual book festival at Rosemont College will be held at Connelly Green and in the library with workshops, readings, panels, and signings from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
I will be on a panel about young adult books with fabulous authors Beth Kephart, April Lindner, and Tiffany Schmidt from 11-12, with a signing afterward. Books will be available for purchase at the event courtesy of Children’s Book World. Hope to see you there!
Rare (First!) West Coast Signing
I will be attending the 48th Nebula Awards Weekend later this month, which includes a mass autograph session on Friday, May 17 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the San Jose Hilton, 300 Almaden Blvd, San Jose, CA.
The autograph session is open to the public and Borderland Books will be selling books by the authors in attendance. This will be my first signing on the West Coast!
