I'll be keynoting at the Publishing Perspectives YA: What's Next Conference

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

I'll keep this short, because it's one of those days, and because sometimes the headline is the story.

Ed Nawotka, editor-in-chief of Publishing Perspectives, has just shared the news that I'll be delivering the keynote address at the upcoming Publishing Perspectives conference.  The date is November 28.  The hour is 9 AM.  The place is the Scholastic headquarters, which recently hosted Taylor Swift, among other greats.  The attire is whatever I choose to wear and whichever pair of shoes I feel can walk me through Manhattan at that hour.

I will also be moderating a panel. 

I've written about this well-orchestrated event at other times, most recently here. I am hopeful that those of you who are interested in the future of children's literature and who want to hear from industry leaders such as Aimee Friedman (Scholastic Trade), Dan Weiss (St. Martin's Press), Mara Anastas (Pulse/Simon & Schuster), Stacy Lellos (Scholastic Trade), Andrew Losowsky (Huffington Post), Jennifer Brown (Shelf Awareness), Doris Janhsen (Oetinger, Germany), Larissa Faw (Your Markets Alert), Francine Lucidon (The Voracious Reader Bookstore), David Levithan (Scholastic/Author), Eliot Schrefer (NBA nominated author), and others will attend.  It will be, I promise, a good time.
