In one short week we’ll be in sunny Anaheim, California (well, it better be sunny or we’ll be PEEVED)– the 54th most populated city in California, founded in 1857 by grape farmers and wine makers: doesn’t that seem like a good sign? We think sunshine, wine, and books are a pretty fantastic setting for this year’s annual meeting of the American Library Association, or as we like to think of it, the annual weekend of book loving and celebrating.
And check out the awesome authors who agreed to come with us! All signings in the HarperCollins Children’s Books Booth, #2558.
