ALA New Orleans

Are you going to New Orleans? Let's make our mark with a Kid/YA Lit Get Together.

Current participants include:

A Fuse # 8 Production

Unfinished Chapter 80.

We are currently planning to meet for dinner before the Booklist "What's So Funny" Program on Friday. Description: Booklist is hosting “What's So Funny?” on Friday, June 23, from 8 to10 p.m. Featured speakers Jack Gantos, David Lubar, Mo Willems, and Lisa Yee will talk about how they create books that make us laugh.

Email me if you want to meet! And if that's not good for you (I know Oracle doesn't get to NO in time), perhaps we can do something pre Printz?

And if you'll be there but have no time, still let me know in the comments. I think it would be cool to have a list of the kid/ya lit bloggers who are at ALA and who may be reporting back.

Sadly, I will not be attending ALA but I'm sincerely hoping that you'll consider reversing the egregious error you made at BEA and this time when you see David Levithan, you will relay my undying love and admiration.

Count me in. It will be so great to get to meet the people who I read daily. This is my first conference, and I am looking forward to meeting as many people as possible.

Annie, I also left a message on your blog. Please email me at lizzy.burns @ gmail.com (remove spaces.)
Right now: it's 6:00pm on Friday, June 23, with us all meeting at the frontmost lobby of Morial Convention Center. From there, we'll go have dinner at the Sun Ray Grill, Warehouse district branch.

I cannot wait to meet people for real, it's going to be fun!!

The question is, Brian -- will David get the Temporary Restraining Order against me or you?

Will you be there to bail me out of jail as I'm yelling "Brian loves you, David!! And it's real, not some fanboy obsession! Call him!"
