NCTE/ALAN Conference, Texas
The Green Earth Book Award panel was well attended and the other speakers were Sneed Collard, Jean Okimoto, and Jill Wolfson. Prof Ernie Bond of Salisbury U was the moderator. I've also been signing posters and books at the Abrams booth and met a blogger who reads this site (teacher). I'll be signing with Scott Westerfield at the Teenlibris (Benbella Books), my Texan publishers who are based here in San Antonio. (Scott was the editor for the Borders/Benbella book on Philip Pullman's The Golden Compass. ) I've got one more panel at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday - ye gods - on Elves, Fairies and Everafters, then I fly out home. It's going to be hectic getting home as all of America will be on the move for Thanksgiving!
