Events I Wish I Could Attend

Today is the Indianapolis Youth Literature Conference. Scheduled presenters are Brian Pinkney, Andrea Davis Pinkney, and Patricia McCormick. One of my co-workers is attending, but I have to work today. I may get to go to a book signing with Patricia McCormick tomorrow, though. :) 

Also today - the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library is hosting a Grand Opening Event

On March 5 is a Brunch and Bookfair with 15 Indiana Authors and Illustrators. Some of the authors include Saundra Mitchell, Christine Johnson, Julia Karr, and Margaret McMullan (who was one of my undergrad English professors - her most recent book, Sources of Light, was just named to the 2011 Best Fiction for Young Adults list!). I have to work on this day too.Why do all the cool events happen on Saturdays? If you're like me and you can't attend this event, you can still support the bookfair online (details here). Proceeds benefit the Indiana region of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. 

What awesome author events are happening where you live?
