Next week I'll be a featured speaker at the Illinois Reading Council Conference in Springfield, IL! I'm getting super excited! Are any of my blog reader planning to attend? I'll be giving presentations from 8-9am, 9:15-10am, and 3-4pm on Thursday, March 15th in the Hilton Embassy Room; autographing from 10:30-11:30am, then reading and autographing with a bunch of other authors in the Hilton Grand Ballroom from 8:30-10:30 pm. Then on Friday, the 16th, I'll be at the Illinois Author and Illustrator Luncheon from 11:45-2:30pm. Looking forward to it!!
