ALA 2009

I’m happy to be off to ALA for part of the annual conference in Chicago. I’m especially excited to talk with authors and illustrators I’ve never met face-to-face, including Greg Christie, illustrator of Bad News for Outlaws, and Rebecca and Donald Wojahn, authors of the Follow That Food Chain series.

I’m also looking forward to seeing long-time Lerner Publishing Group authors—Sally Walker, Vaunda Nelson, and Bob Raczka—for whom I’ve developed great respect over the years.

All will be signing new books during the weekend. Plus there’s cake, as Lerner Publishing Group continues to celebrate 50 years in publishing! Hoping to see you in Chicago.
