How to boil it all down to one blog post?
I tried to do everything. EVERYTHING.
I went to every keynote, breakout and workshop.
The problem? Didn’t schmooze nearly enough.
I did find myself in a quiet moment before the first keynote, and introduced myself to the shy little lady sitting next to me. We chatted–and I found out it was ANNE ANGEL–who wrote:
She won the 2011 YALSA Award for Excellence in Nonfiction for Young Adults. FUDGE YEAH! She was wonderful.
And I met the lovely and powerful CHERI WILLIAMS in the flesh!
I am telling you, I am buying an island where we can all live together.
Tell me, one of these things is not like the others. Perhaps, MIKE JUNG?
Next time, I am taking the Red Bull.
