Featured Speaker at 2019 Texas Library Association Conference

Among authors of books for young readers, the Texas Library Association Conference holds an almost mythic status. Some say it's the second best library conference (after the American Library Association's) and some say it's the most fun of all literary conferences.

I'm about to find out firsthand.

In April, I'll be participating in my first TLA, and as a Featured Speaker. I am always grateful and humbled to be asked to speak but did not realize the extent of this honor till I saw the conference program. Though the conference is huge, there are only two pages of Featured Speakers; I would have guessed many more.

In any case, I look forward, Texas-style (i.e. in a big way)!
