Artist on the Run


Oh what busy times! I’ve been meaning to mention, here on this little blog, a couple events that are coming up. Events at which I will be appearing! Events at which I will be talking about writing and drawing!

The first thing on my “event horizon” is the Texas Library Association conference in Houston. I will be there on April 19th. At 8 am I will be participating in the Maverick Graphic Novel Reading List panel, along with authors Shannon Hale, Gareth Hinds and Orson Scott Card. ORSON SCOTT CARD!

Also, I just might be carrying around an actual print copy of Legends of Zita!

The other event is the International Reading Association convention in Chicago. I will be there on April 30th and at 11 am that day I’ll be participating with other authors in a talk called Visual Literacy Through Graphic Novels. Dave Roman will be there! And some signings and things in the afternoon.

Oh airplanes, I wish I weren’t so terrified of you.

Aaargh! The first event that's actually kind of close and it's on Olive's birthday! Maybe she'd enjoy a trip to Chicago...

I was so excited to see you'll be in Houston, but then I saw the conference registration fees. ^^; And I may be mistaken, but it looks like it's not even open to the general public; it looks like you have to be a member of their association (more fees) or work for a library. :(

Oh well. Wishing you fair travels and a welcome to Houston anyway!

Oh Boo! I didn't know about the fees either. This is my first time at either of these things, so there's more things I don't know then I do know. Like life.

Orson Scott Card. So awesome. They should give you a shirt that says, "I presented with Orson Scott Card."
