Do not necessarily be put off by the "kid" part (you can be put off if you only read grown-up books, of course, but then why would you be reading my blog?). There are a lot of YA book bloggers who are part of the kidlitosphere.
This year it's happening September 28th and 29th in New York. Here's the schedule and cost:
For those who register before September 21st:
- $35 Pre-Conference without dinner
- $0 Saturday Conference
- $55 Pre-Conference with dinner (special guest speaker: Grace Lin)
- $50 Friday dinner (extra diner or only)
My own cunning plan is to bring my first edition of Where the Mountain Meets the Moon for Grace Lin to sign; it's increased value will then go a long way to covering my costs when my grandchildren sell it in fifty years!
The call for session proposals is currently open as well.
