May 4th, Saturday:
11 AM-2:00PM: Giant Bookfair —Calling this booksigning “Giant” is no hyperbole. Hundreds of authors will be there, so many you’ll likely need a map to find the ones you want. Even if you haven’t signed up for the convention, this booksigning is open to the public. For $5.00, you can even bring in the books on your keeper shelf and have your favorite author sign them. Click here to see who else will be there.
5:00-6:00 PM: Sourcebooks Bookseller & Librarian Party–Looking forward to meeting my personal heroes and heroines, those who “handsell” my work.
Even if you’re not attending RT, be sure to check back here on my blog on May 1st! I’m planning a special treat for all my readers, whether you’re in KC or not!
