What are you doing a year from now?

July 20th, 2010 • Kate

harry-potter-half-blood-kisWell, ok, no exactly a year from now. Just under that. From July 13 through the 17th, I’ll be at Leaky Con 2011. For the first time next year, Leaky Con is hosting a special Lit Day, and the list of guests is amazing. (And I’m not just saying that because I’m on it — as a YA reader myself, I’m going to be trying not to act like a fan girl around some of my fellow speakers!) Registration just opened, so if you were thinking your home town just wasn’t hot or humid enough in mid-July, why don’t you think about joining us in Orlando next summer?

Oh, and did I mention the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II viewing party? or the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park practically next door? What are you waiting for?!?

*No, this isn’t an image from the new movies. Yes, it’s just an excuse to coo about how cute Harry and Ginny are. What’s wrong with that?

    I will totally be there! I love it when awesome things happen in my back yard! (Ok, so Universal isn't exactly my "back yard". Universal is in Dr. Phillips High School's backyard, but I could see all the fireworks from my bedroom when I was a teen, and now I only live 45 minutes away.)

    I'm excited! Maureen Johnson! Scott Westerfeld! Kate herself! What's not to love?

    OMG! I am SO there!

    I just found out you and Maureen would be there this afternoon. I've been talking my mom into going with me ever since. =D

    Soooo excited!

    That's like a half hour from me. And that guest list. O_O

    On the other hand, I don't get paid over the summer, so I won't be signing up any time soon. But yeah, color me interested.

    I will be there!

    Perfect grad gift for my twin sister!

    Jarrod and I will be there! (Of course.) The last Leaky was a blast, largely in part to the GREAT, SUPER-ENTHUSIASTIC audiences at both the speaking events and wrock shows.

    I'm dying to go- the whole broke college student/writer thing is really NOT fun right now. 🙂
