IRA 2012 in Chicago!

Here is a pic of the booth from my first IRA when Nightshade City
came out. Yes, I LOVE that poster with the rat!!

The 57th annual International Reading Association Conference in Chicago is finally underway! I've been lucky enough to go the last 2 years and I'm so thrilled I'll be there tomorrow! If you don't know about the IRA, its a fantastic annual conference at McCormick Place in Chicago where thousands of educators gather to celebrate teaching literacy and ways to learn more about their craft. I think last year over 30,000 people came to the conference! Did I mention 30,000? The IRA is not just a conference, but the world's leading organization of literacy professionals. Please be sure to check them out at

If you happen to be going to the conference this year, I'll be there tomorrow from 2pm - 3pm signing copies of THE WHITE ASSASSIN (read the IRA review here!) at the Holiday House booth (#1940)! Please come by! The exhibit hall is huge so be sure to grab a map or print one from the IRA conference website.

Did I mention the exhibit hall is HUGE????
Okay, come see me tomorrow! ;) I say, road trip!!
