coming up

Here's what I have coming up in the next couple months (and I'm sure more stuff will get squeezed in between):

  • April 17, 2010: “Discovering Careers Seminar,” at College of the Canyons in Valencia. Noon. I'll be talking to kids and adults about being a writer, and the other kinds of jobs people have in the production of books. Admission is free.
  • April 24-25, 2010: LA Times Festival of Books, at UCLA, Los Angeles, CA. I will be on a panel called Boys Will Be Boys: Guys Talk YA (this is a working title that may be changed). Fellow panelists include Ben Esch, Blake Nelson, and Allen Zadoff, moderated by Cecil Castellucci. This 45-minute panel will take place on the Saturday, April 24th at 1:00 p.m. on the YA Stage. Book signing to follow. Watch for the special section of the Los Angeles Times, this Sunday, on April 18.
  • June 26 - 28, 2010: American Library Association Annual Conference, Washington DC. I’ll be speaking on a panel to librarians and participating in the “YA Authors Coffee Klatch.” Signing and giving away advance copies of The Marbury Lens.
