Well, 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?
I left my heart… In San Francisco, of course. Or, ok, maybe not my heart, but certainly a bit of skin off my toe as my sweet little espadrilles rubbed my foot raw as I climbed up and down a few hills today. I’m in town for the San Francisco South chapter of the SCBWI’s Agent’s Day, and will be speaking tomorrow with a number of my esteemed colleagues.
