I wanted to let everyone know that it looks like I will be going to the RT Booklovers Convention, April 11-14, in Chicago.
If you’ve never been, the RT convention is a really fun event with tons of panels, parties, and a big, Saturday book signing that features hundreds of authors. I’ll be participating in a couple of panels and some other events, including the following:
Murder, Mayhem and Madness: YA Action & Suspense — Wednesday, April 11, 1-2 p.m.
Trends — What’s Hot, What’s Not & What’s Next in UF — Thursday, April 12, 10-11 a.m.
Club RT — Thursday, April 12, 11:15 a.m. I believe these are 30-minute segments.
Kensington Books & All That Jazz — Thursday, April 12, 12:20-1:20 p.m. I actually have another event at this time as well, so I’ll probably only be at the Kensington event for the first fifteen minutes or so.
Giant Book Fair — Saturday, April 14, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Note that during the book fair, I will be signing in the YA Alley with about 55 other YA authors.
ROOM B: Author Speed-Reading — Saturday, April 14, 3:45-4:45 p.m.
Teen Day Party — Saturday, 6:15-7:30 p.m.
I believe it’s $5 if you just want to come to the Saturday book fair or $25 if you want to participate in the Teen Day events, which are also on Saturday. You can check the convention website for more information.
There is a possibility that I might not make it to the convention after all, especially if something unexpected comes up at the last minute. But I hope that I will be able to make it. We’ll see what happens.
