NJW @ ALA (in DC)

It's that time of the year, and the American Library Association is once again holding its summer convention, this time in Washington, DC.

Nancy's first formal gig will be the Penguin librarian dinner at 7 p.m. this evening (6/26), where invited librarians will meet with Nancy and other Penguin authors.

Next she'll be up bright and early to appear at the YALSA coffee klatsch in 209C at the Convention Center for a "speed dating" event at 8 a.m on Sunday, to talk to ticket holders (you can get 'em at the door).

And she has pen poised: Sunday afternoon Nancy will be signing at the Penguin booth (#2500) from 1 to 2 p.m. -- look for advance reader's copies of Extraordinary! -- and from there she will hustle in a dignified manner over to the BWI booth (#3231) for another signing from 2 to 3 p.m.

Should be greatish. Hope to see you there...

Sneak peek at Extraordinary

The ARCs are out for Extraordinary, and the bloggers are already hard at work, reading and reviewing. If you can't wait until the September release to get a few tidbits, have a look at this take from The Naughty Book Kitties.

Carolinians goin' to Massachusetts in their minds

Summer has come to North Carolina, and the Charlotte Observer offers up a little article on summertime reading, with a couple of recommendations from local librarians on what its student readers might want to be reading between school years. Impossible is one of two books that they suggest for kids in Grades 11 and 12. It's going to be a good summer...
