TLA Day the first

I meant to tweet and blog today but it was not to be. First, during breakfast, my chair called and texted me to ask me to bring her my laptop for her presentation since her MAC would not work with the other equipment in the room. Then, I worked our exhibit booth for the rest of the day. Every time I tried to post, people came up to talk. So, here is a recap of the day.

No sessions attended. No booths visited until 4:30. Snagged a few F and Gs from Penguin. Got a preview of the new Gareth Hinds from Candlewick. Nothing else left after the locusts, erm, librarians left. Will try to do better tomorrow.

Did have breakfast with Tim Jones of Holt and have the ARC for the new Mary Pearson (squee) and a couple of new ones that look promising. Met a Texas author with her first book out from Feiwel. Loved her! Jill Alexander is her name. Just spoke to Joan Bauer who I will meet for breakfast tomorrow. Now on to dinner with Candlewick.
