Pics from TLA

I’m so, so, so late on this, so I won’t go into to many details about TLA, except to say that it was great! The panel with John and Wendy went very well, and I had a chance to hang out with both old and new friends. You can check out Margo and Jenny‘s blogs for more info. However, I did want to post a few pics:

Here I am with author Sara Zarr. I’ve know Sara through the power of The Internets for a few years now, so it was really nice to meet her face-to-face.

Here I am with Chris Barton and Wendy Lichtman. Fun fact: Wendy is related to Austin author Shana Burg.

And if you’re wondering why Chris is wearing a t-shirt that says, “Ask me who INVENTED this color,” you should check out his upcoming book, The Day-Glo Brothers (Charlesbridge, 2009).

Here I am with Gretchen Pruett, Library Director for the New Braunfels Public Library and Julie Ousley, a member of the New Braunfels Public Library Advisory Board. I’ll be speaking at the New Braunfels Public Library at the end of June.

And here I am with Renee Dyer, chair of the TLA Tayshas Committee. My Life as a Rhombus was named to the Tayshas List last year.

Again, I wish I took more pics of all the fabulous people I met. Hopefully I’ll take more pictures at the 2010 Conference in San Antonio!
