Please Come To Boston

Come January, I'll be attending American Library Association Midwinter Meeting 2010 in Boston, aka Midwinter. I'm on the Schneider Family Book Award Committee; the books will be announced, with the other awards, on Monday January 18. As we get closer, I'll post more about my schedule at Midwinter.

In the meanwhile -- Tweet up, for all you kidlit and YA bloggers who will either be at Midwinter or are in the Boston area! Mitali Perkins and Deborah Sloan have made all the arrangements, as explained at Mitali Perkins' blog, Mitali's Fire Escape: ALA Midwinter Kid/YA Lit Tweetup. I expect it to be very, very fun!

As Mitali's blog explains, the Tweet up is January 16, 2010 from 4-6 in the Birch Bar at Boston's Westin Waterfront Hotel. Mitali explains it all, so please click through the links above.
Space is limited, so sign up now (and check out the other people who will be there!)

I'm going to Midwinter but not to YA stuff. I hope you all have a great time! :)

Well, maybe your schedule will change! It looks like it will be a great mix of bloggers, writers, reviewers, publishers, bookish people, etc.

Even though I'm not a librarian I'd love to be there sounds like a fabulous event to participate in. Have a great time.

The meet up sounds like such fun! Hmmm, I may have to Amtrak it.

When I saw your headline on Bloglines, I immediately thought "She said no." Thanks for the little trip back to the 70s.
