So, last night was dinner with Random House. I sat between Matt Holm (illustrious illustrator of BABYMOUSE) and Schuyler, an editor from RH (sorry not have gotten the last name). It was a blast. We talked about all things literary as well as wine, babies, school, celebrity books, creme brulee, and other topics not literary). Got back to the hotel in time for the nightly fire alarm. Got 4 hours of sleep.
Headed back to the convention center this morning to appear on a panel with Phil Bildner and Loren Long (sporting 19th century baseball outfits), Kelly Milner Halls (with her fossilized poop), Wallace Edwards, Mary Downing Hahn, and our own LJer Lisa Yee (who had a stuffed peep and I got to get a photo with it). The session went swimmingly though the audience was sparse. Since IRA is in Canada, attendance is way down (about 8-9000 was the number I heard day one).
Now I am back in the hotel waiting for the next fire alarm. I hope to have a chance to do some reading later and will post accordingly.
