Today I trek across the inactive volcano crater with the Boy Scouts. Let me leave you in the comfort of your home with a review of upcoming reader conventions!
- Barbara Vey's Readers' Appreciation, April 10, in Oak, Creak, WI. From its website (link)
Join us as we welcome 38 authors to Wisconsin for an afternoon luncheon filled with fun, gift bags full of books and door prizes. We will also be raffling off an acoustic guitar with accessories, a full color Nook and many baskets filled with books and other items. Not only will you enjoy lunch at an author table, but this event includes a book signing with NYT best seller Heather Graham and the 38 authors attending.
My part: I am driving the authors who arrived early in Chicago, including CH Admirand, Renee Bernard, Anne Elizabeth, Heather Graham, and Cathy Maxwell. Aren't I the lucky driver?!?
- RT Booklovers' Convention, April 11 -14, in Chicago, IL. From its website (link),
At the 2012 RT Booklover Convention we will be celebrating The Year of the Reader. We've expanded our Reader track to include even more panels, workshops and opportunities for you to meet some of your favorite authors. Spend time with authors, readers and fellow booklovers at these panels, games and special reader-centric events!
My part: I host the SOS America Military Mixer to honor military families:
- RWA's 32nd Annual Conference, July 25-28, in Anaheim, CA. From its website (link)
My part: just attend! I look forward to the Literacy Signing on Wednesday, July 25, 5 -7 pm.
I encourage you attend these events, even for a day, especially if you live within driving distance. If you are attending, let's get together! Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I know there are other conferences - are you attending any? How about a local signing in your neighborhood? One randomly selected commenter will win a book choice from my convention stash. This giveaway is open to all readers. Comments are open through Saturday, March 17, 10 pm in Hawaii. I'll post the winner on Sunday, March 18.
