Conferences, Conferences!

What a busy week+ coming up.
The American Jewish Libraries conference and the American Library Association conference are both in Chicago. I am very much looking forward to attending both of them. (Though I've never been to either before and so, truly, have no idea what to expect.)

The AJL conference will be the first time I, publically, start telling people about my next book, QUEEN OF SECRETS. This book is a modern retelling of The Book of Esther and I am starting to get really excited about it. Even though its pub date is still nearly a year away.

But a year can go very quickly, as we all know.

AT ALA I will be manning the SCBWI booth on Monday afternoon, from 1-3 p.m. Stop by and say hello!
