ALA 2011


The American Library Association Annual Conference kicks off on Friday in New Orleans, and I’m super excited because I’LL BE THERE! I’m teaming up with nine fantastic nonfiction writers in a massive celebration of writing and reading and sharing nonfiction. Here are the details:

Nonfiction Book Blast: Booktalks and Activities for Your Library
Sunday June 26, 2011, 8am-10am
Morial Convention Center Room 243

Start school with new booktalks and activities from ten nonfiction authors: April Pulley Sayre (Rah, Rah, Radishes), Kelly Milner Halls (In Search of Sasquatch), Deborah Heiligman (Charles and Emma), Loree Griffin Burns (The Hive Detectives), Carla Killough McClafferty (The Many Faces of George Washington), Christine Taylor-Butler (Magnets), Shirley Duke (You Can’t Wear These Genes), Darcy Pattison (Prairie Storms), Carla Mooney (Explorers of the New World) and Anastasia Suen (Read and Write Sports). (Handouts)

I’ll also be signing books in the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt booth (#1539-1540) immediately after the presentation and until 11am. I’ve packed scads of honey candy, so please do stop by.

Safe travels!
