It’s conference season!
Right now I’m sitting in a Starbuck’s in Austin, Texas – where I’ll be signing 200 copies of MELT at Yalsa’s Young Adult Literature Symposium for young adult library collections around the country!
Next week I’ll be in Washington, D.C. for the National Council of Teachers of English convention, doing a panel discussion called Real Stories: Adding Flesh to the Bare Bones of Fact.
Being on the road is fun, though not conducive to writing! I have to sequester myself next week. Between my launch, blog tour and conventions – I have a lot of catching up to do! (And forget about laundry!)
Since my friend and fellow author Marry Dane Brimner is on the DC panel with me (indeed – it was his idea & labor – I merely hitched a ride on his star!) I thought I’d share an interview I did with him back in 2012. Wow, so much has changed since then. But literature remains an anchor of humanity.
Here’s the link! Enjoy:
