As mentioned on Friday, I’m heading to the NYC Teen Author Reading tonight! I’m super excited. I used to go to these all the time back before that baby thing came into the picture. And before I moved to Central Jersey where I added a delightful extra hour to my old hour-long commute. But the Hubs is doing solo baby duty tonight so I can attend. Yay!
One of the reasons I’m super excited is that I get to see my crit partner Heather Strickland again! I last saw her two years ago at SCBWI LA. Evidence below:
I’m also looking forward to seeing my agentmate K. M. Walton again!
And it gets even better. I mean, just look at this amazing line up:
- Caela Carter, Me, Him, Them, and It
- Elizabeth Eulberg, Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality
- Maya Gold, Spellbinding
- Barry Lyga, Game
- Michael Northrop, Rotten
- Lindsay Ribar, The Art of Wishing
- Jennifer E. Smith, This is What Happy Looks Like
- Nova Ren Suma, 17 & Gone
- Jess Verdi, My Life After Now
- K. M. Walton, Empty
If you see me there, please say hi! I need to jet right after the reading ends so you’re best bet to stalk me…er…catch me is before it starts.
