I'm both feeling ill AND extraordinarily busy today, dear readers, so no time for the thougtful review I was hoping for. Instead, here's some of what I've got coming up -- maybe I'll see you around...
I'm headed to the New England Independent Booksellers Association (NEIBA) trade show in Providence on Friday, where I've been invited to speak on an ABA panel titled "Doing Digital Right." Robert Gray of Fresh Eyes and Shelf Awareness and Heather Gain of Harvard Bookstore will be my illustrious co-panelists, and the inimitable Len Vlahos is moderating; it's at 3:00 PM.
Next, of course, is the New Atlantic Independent Booksellers Association trade show (or NAIBA-Con) in Baltimore -- hooray! On Sunday, October 14, I'll be joining Robert Gray (again) and Felicia Sullivan on a panel tentatively titled "Getting the Most out of the Internet" at 3:45 PM. Hope to see you there!
Then, closer to home, I'm honored to participate in the Literary Writers Conference of the Council of Literary Magazines and Presses here in New York. On Saturday, November 10, at 2:30 pm, I'll be one of speakers on a panel titled "The Power of Blogging". Stop by if you're in the neighborhood. (Incidentally, the program is the first time I've ever seen my name alphabetized under the ALP's last name...it comes right before Ishmael Beah. Kind of exciting!)
Let me know if I can hope to see you at any of these events!
