So today is the official start of the conference! This evening there will be a HUGE booksigning for Literacy with hundreds of authors in attendance. You can find a complete list here.
The signing is open to the public and I was lucky enough to go to the one in Atlanta in 2006. WOW! Talk about being overwhelmed. I don’t do well in crowds anyway, and I am supershy so after I hit the authors I had on my list (yes, I made a list), I kind of stood against the wall looking lost and staring at authors.
I am hoping that this year I will at least talk to more authors rather than just stand there awestruck…but we shall see. I’ll be sure to tell you all about it when I come back…unless I make a fool of myself. LOL
Now, the signing only lasts a couple of hours and that’s a lot of authors to try to visit.
So, my questions for you are:
How would you manage your time? Who are some of your must-see authors from that list?
