|Building #3 and behind it, the conference center.|
The conference was great--the speakers were amazing and the opportunity to do the Lisa McMann/Robin Brande/A.S. King teen-mortification show one last time on Tuesday morning was great fun. And it's always good to run into author friends, too, of course. (Or make new ones!) Most especially the teachers, educators, librarians and youth advocates make the entire show for me. Bumping into people I spoke to last year, and having the chance to meet new people is always the best part. ALAN in pictures to follow.

Now--don't hate me. There is one more picture. It's an important one. You'll still see me on Facebook and Twitter but you won't see me here for a month or so. I've got to finish the next book, ASK THE PASSENGERS. So, unless there is HUGE NEWS I am playing the card:
Have a great holiday season whatever you celebrate. May the force be with you.
