As always, it was great to see fellow authors and illustrators, as well as the librarians who've supported our books through the years. And I always enjoy seeing what's new at the publisher booths.
We had a great time for my panel Tuesday afternoon, "What's New with Texas Middle Grade and YA Authors," organized by Susie Kralovansky, featuring Jessica Lee Anderson moderating, and fellow panelists Paige Britt, Cory Putnam Oakes, P.J. Hoover, Cynthia Levinson, Liz Garton Scanlon, Jennifer Mckissack, and Joy Preble. Conversation was entertaining and enlightening.
Many thanks to everyone who puts in the work to make TLA the best state library conference in the country!
