After breakfast, we took the shuttle over to the Convention Center for a meeting with other YALSA online course instructors. Eve Gaus was terrific and I know think I can Moodle with the best of them.
Then, my better half joined the two of us for exhibits. Got a hug from Christopher Paul Curtis. Talked to Scottie Bowditch and Adrienne Waintraub and Tracy Lerner and Sharon Hancock and Tim Jones and Dina Sherman and others I am probably forgetting. We picked up some ARCS, too.
Next was a lunch courtesy of LBYR with Cornelia Funke. Divine. I now have an ARC of RECKLESS (posted about it here last week).
Dashed from lunch to the YALSA NONFICTION COMMITTEE. I was appointed a week ago and have been trying to play catch up in my reading. It was a terrific meeting and I know we will have some great books on the shortlist at the end of the year.
Last, but not least, was a dinner with Deborah Heiligman courtesy of MacMillan with the Prints and Nonfiction Committees. Great food, interesting conversation and a champagne toast to Deborah Heiligman and to CHARLES AND EMMA.
Now, we are off for some food. Exhibits later and dinner tonight with Adam Rapp.
